  4. Microsoft Edge changing association for files

    Microsoft Edge keeps taking over PDF file open/association

    Every few days the file association for PDFs on my Windows 10 machine switches to Microsoft Edge.

    I then right click on a PDF, choose "Open With -> Choose Another App", select Acrobat from the list, and check "Always use this app to open .PDF files".

    Then for a few days it sticks, but always winds up going back to Microsoft Edge. I haven't figured out a pattern to suggest when/why this happens. It just does and is very annoying.

    Does anyone have an idea of why this happens or how to permanently fix it?
