File View will allow to upload binary files, However you can only view/read the Text files via Ambari View.

Binary files (Like PDF/ Image files) are not supposed to be displayed fine in File View.

In order to view those files, you can however use the "Download" button present in the file view to download the file on your local machine (laptop) and then open it in the suitable s/w (like Image viewers/ PDF reader)
