  2. Trouble Opening PDF's

    Hi Parker,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:

    • Does the issue persist in Edge browser?
    • Do you get similar error when you open the PDF file in Adobe reader?


    Check if you are facing similar issue in Edge browser.



    Step 1: Open PDF file in Adobe reader and check if you are facing similar issue.



    To open PDF file directly from Adobe reader, follow the steps below:



    • Open Adobe application and click on Edit.
    • Click on Preferences and select Internet.
    • Uncheck Display PDF in Browser option and check if you are able to open the PDF file without getting the error code.


    Step 2: If you are able to open PDF file in Adobe reader, I suggest you to
    Turn off Internet Explorer,
    enable it again and check if the issue is resolved.



    For further assistance, I suggest you to post your query in Adobe support forum.

    Thank you.

  3. Problems opening PDF in Edge

    I had saved several printed several files off of the internet to pdf and have not experienced any issues until today. I tried to open a file and received the following message.

    Couldn’t open PDF

    Something’s keeping this PDF from opening.

    I went to several other files that I have done this way previously and was no longer able to open them as well which is causing a serios issue. I have tried to open the file in other formats but have had no luck. Any suggestions?

    opening pdf file

    Hi Kieran,

    Right click a PDF file, choose 'Open With' - Choose Another App

    Important - Check the box marked 'Always use this app to open PDF . . .'

    If Edge is not in the list, scroll to the bottom and click 'More Apps'

    Does Edge appear in that list?

    If Edge will not open a PDF file for you, what error are you seeing when you try to open a PDF in Edge?
