If you're on stock, then I think that enabling usb debugging under settings->gear info can allow for usb transfer of files.

The fix for this is, like you did, either move it to another directory, or (even easier) simply put quotes around the file name. So, your full command would be

adb install "C:\Users\SP Gaming I\Desktop\samsung\calculator.apk"

As a tip for command line stuff in the future, do this.
cd "C:\Users\SP Gaming I\Desktop\samsung"
adb install calculator.apk


You can also use the Tab key to autocomplete file names when in cmd.exe on Windows, which will auto-add the quotes if they are needed.

As you mentioned in your other post, acquiring APK files in the first place isn't immediately obvious. You can use:
"cant post outside links" - retarded since this is a quote...
and just paste the Google Play link in and download, even without the extension. However, once set up, the Chrome extension is extremely easy to use; just click the button and you're done. If you really really don't want to install Chrome for your untold reasons, you can always set up a virtual machine, or use a program like Sandboxie to make sure it doesn't touch the rest of your system.

It does seem odd that none of the guides say that you had to hit the version number 7 times; that's actually been a part of Android since 4.2. All USB Debugging options are disabled until you do that, on any device.
Thank you so much for your reply! Now things doesn't seem as mysterious as they did. Once again, big thanks for your post!

btw, also found this repository for apks: androiddrawer

My gear still won't show as usb on my computer, but installing apks through adb is working I just couldn't get the push file from adb to work.
