  3. Edge keeps defaulting as PDF viewer

    hi, i tried that as well as just changing the file type by right-click over a .pdf, properties then change PDF.

    However, in both cases if EDGE launches it becomes the PDF reader again even though it cannot open PDF..

    Sometimes in the default programmes window, I cannot uncheck the PDF box..

    I use a portable version of Sumatra reader (single file .exe which is not installed on the PC)

    Why does EDGE grab the .pdf extension if it cannot open PDF?
