    Does the file being downloaded end in the .apk file extension? Are you downloading from a legitimate 3rd party app store?

    I highly recommend you to download apps from Play store. many apps from external source are harmful to your device

    If you open Adobe, does it show up in the app, or is there a way to import it? What happens if you open Adobe and then tap the menu button?

    If when you open Adobe it will not show up in the Files,

    1) Try renaming the file. This can be done within a file manager.

    2) Possibly the file is corrupted. Try deleting and redownloading.

    Good luck!
