Re: How do I change which program opens a file with a given extension?

I think the easiest way to change this is to right click on the pdf and select open with and if theres a sub menu select choose program

And from the list choose adobe acrobat reader then tab to always use this program and check it

Then hit ok

That should do it

 

You can also choose the program to open with through file properties if that’s easier

It seems that a Microsoft update has set pdf files to open in Edge. This is stupid! I have Adobe Acrobat

Reader and I need pdf files to open in it. How do i change this?

 

Thanks,

John
