Reset Default PDF Application

The default PDF reader for Windows 10 is Microsoft Edge. Many users prefer using a version of the free Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat instead. Here is how you can quickly change the default PDF application.

  • Right Click any PDF file on your desktop or in the file explorer.

  • Select "Open with"

  • Click "Choose another app" ( I realize you can see the app you want in the menu, but if you click that choice it will only work once).

  • Select the PDF reader you prefer

  • Click the "Always use this box to open .pdf files"

  • Click OK

That's it. Let us know if you need further assistance by clicking the Slingshot Tech Support Button Below. Slingshot provides network support and helpdesk services to business.
