Apps and Installations

I have an apk file (Kindle format) I want to install on my Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet.
The tablet is a replacement for my HDX tablet, which finally died an ignoble death. The app works on the other tablets and phones, but it does not "work" on the newer HD tablet.
I think it will work if I can get it downloaded/moved and installed.
(I tried Xender and other apps to get the file on the tablet in the right place, but no luck. Amazon's proprietary version of Android is fussy and won't allow certain things. Yes, I might be able to sideload it or root the tablet, but don't want to at this time. If I do those things, it is hard to update and some other quirks happen.)
The HELP section of DB said I should tap the action box and use MORE. Well, HELP must be a little behind because there is no MORE anymore. (Apologies to Gertrude Stein and the city of Oakland.)
How do I get the apk file (about 27mb) from DB to the storage/emulated/0/download location in the Fire HD? Can it be done with DB? If not, any suggestions?
Thanks. All replies gratefully accepted.
Hey @zhura, thanks for nudging us on this thread - welcome aboard!
Out of curiosity, have you tried exporting the file while connected to cellular data or a different WiFi network?
Let me know what you find!
Thanks for your swift reply, @zhura - awesome work with the workaround!
If you'd like to continue troubleshooting this, you can try exporting it while you're connected to a network and see if that does the trick.
If not, I'm still here if you have any other questions. Let me know!
