    Have you deleted the file in file manager? Most probably the file will be deleted if you do that way. And the downloaded file in the chrome's downloads is caused by a bug which can be solved by clearing the app data. But before clearing, it is recommended the sync your chrome's data to your google account to backup all your data.

    Hope it works.:)

    Hi there, the file size is 0 Bytes which means it has not downloaded properly. Did you by any chance tried deleting it by connecting your phone to computer and then deleting it via computer.
    Should not be downloading apps from outside playstore...!

    Thats because it is only of 0B and a corrupt download, probably thats why it cant be deleted. Its causing no harm actually. try going to Google Chrome, downloads option on top right 3 dots and see if you find it and can delete.

    Hi there, it is not a software bug. These is found on lot of Android devices and you might even encounter with Windows on laptop. It has something to do with how the operating system behaves.

    Have you tied to make a new folder, move the file into that folder and delete that folder?
