In Android Studio when you have the app/project open, and you click the green triangle at top or choose run from the drop down menu, the app/project will install on your phone. If you don't see it on the main pages of apps, go to the listing of ALL apps for your phone, and it should show up there.

One exception to this would be if the app fails to compile due to an error, then it would not properly install to your phone. You have to fix all the errors and compile/build successfully for the app to install.

Oh, and you also have to have your phone plugged in to PC via USB, have developer mode enabled on your phone (tap build number seven times) under settings -> about , and have the USB driver for your phone installed on your PC.
