Default [Q] Is it possible to extract an APK file directly to an Android phone ?

I want to extract the files from the APK to get the app installed,
the problem is that the system does not recognize the apk files anymore.

if you want to just extract apk then it can be done by winrar but if you want to make it installable in your device then decompile it using apk tool
PHONE;- Samsung galaxy s duos gt-s7562
OS:- Android ICS 4.0.4
BASEBAND VERSION:- S7562DDBMJ1

I think you are trying to actually extract it on the device and not your computer. This is possible with easily with an app called RAR For Android available in the Playstore. It's a free download.

If you mean extracting .apk files from your phone to get elsewhere you can use an app called "ApkExtractor" available in Play store for free of charge.

Default It's an android device (4.2.2) and it doesn't recognize APK files

So I need to extract the APK files from my computer to my device so the app will be installed.
