  1. Edge or Adobe PDF viewers?


    From a security standpoint, if you were to pick a PDF viewer, which one would you pick out of these two only? Edge or Adobe? Only from a security standpoint and only pick Edge or Adobe only, meaning no mentioning of other 3rd party PDF programs.

    Edge keeps replacing Adobe as default PDF viewer

    Microsoft Edge keeps reverting to the default PDF viewer and it's extremely frustrating. I believe it occurs whenever I unzip files using winzip. I know how to reset the default application but it's time consuming doing it once or twice every day and shouldn't
    be necessary.

    Why does it keep changing back to Microsoft Edge and how can I stop this?

    Can i remove Microsoft Edge completely?

    Why does Adobe not appear in the default programs list? How can I add this to the list as if it did appear the steps to change the default viewer would be quicker.

  4. Edge or Adobe PDF viewers?

    Windows 10 Edge PDF Viewer

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    1. Click on start menu and select settings.

    2. Click on System.

    3. Click on Default apps.

    4. Towards the bottom of the page
    'Choose default application by fire type'.

    5. Scroll down to .pdf

    When you get to pdf, you will only see Adobe Acrobat Reader on the list.

    You'll need to left click at Adobe Acrobat Reader > then choose Microsoft Edge.

    That will change Edge as the default app to open pdf files.
