Cannot run my first app in my android phone

Hi Xamarin Community

How come my app doesn't launch / run in my android phone? it will install on the phone with no problem then when it is done installing I choose Open but it will just throw me back to my Download folder where the .apk file resides
Anyway Here is the specs of the phone and the Build properties of my program

Im using Huawei phone with Nougat(7.0) Android on it

my Build properties as follows
Compile using Android version Android 8.1(Oreo)
Android Manifest Minimum Android Version Android 4.4(Kit Kat)
Target Android Version Android 8.1(Oreo)

Im using Visual Studio 2017 and Xamarin Platform

I have restarted my phone after it throws me back to the folder I did that method when I was still on Kitkat plus I tried building a new blank project untouched and deploying it on the nougat phone and it works but my written program does not work by the way no Errors on my Error List of Visual Studio

    Seems like your app crashes directly on start up. Does it work in debug mode?
