Transfer AZW3 file to HD8

Is there a way to transfer AZW3 files from a PC to an HD8 Fire? When I connect the Fire with a USB cable, a Fire directory appears under This PC, but the directory is empty.

Okay, I figured it out.
1) Connect the Fire to the PC with a USB cable. The PC will show File Explorer with an empty Fire directory.
2) The Fire will show four options under "Use USB to". Select Transfer Files.
3) The PC will now show another File Explorer with the Fire directory showing an Internal Storage icon. Double click on that to show the Fire's subdirectories. Double click on the Kindle subdirectory.
4) Drag and drop the AZW3 file to the Kindle subdirectory. You're done.

That is standard behaviour for an android 6 device.
It is annoying that you cannot save a default option for file transfer mode.
We have the same menu hassle when connecting phone to pc to back up photos

it is less trouble to install calibre companion and move your books wirelessly.

I never bother to use usb with tablets
