Changing the default pdf reader in Windows 10

One of the main complaints we hear from clients that upgraded to Windows 10 is the issue with PDFs. Basically Windows changes the default PDF viewer to use Microsoft Edge and most people don’t like it. Here is how to change it back.

Open File Explorer and look for a PDF you want to open (or find one on your desktop). Right-click on the PDF and and select “Open with > Choose another app”.

Another window will pop up asking you to choose a program for this one time or always use this app. Check the box that says “Always use this app to open .pdf files” and select Adobe Acrobat from the list and click “OK”. You probably already have Adobe PDF reader on you computer, if not, you can download it at here and repeat this process.
