    Microsoft Edge PDF file problems


    Typical MS I typed this message in and MS decided I was not logged in - so I logged in and lost the message - had to type it all again! Warning to you all - make a copy of your message before you submit your message.

    Microsoft Edge (MSE) is MS new offering in Windows 10 for viewing PDF files, I like it with one big BUT.

    MSE will not open files from a Subst drive/folder, a facility I use a lot.

    I have a NAS drive used as a backup/server and despite several complaints on the web files on my NAS drive can be viewed OK.

    Examples:
    1. Data Drive F: (Physical Drive)
    file:///F:/P/ABC/Removal%20Documentation/Job%20Documents/Job%20123/Air%20Test%20123.pdf
    MSE opens this file OK

    2. NAS Drive (Mapped as U: )
    file:///U:/ABC/Removal%20Documentation/Job%20Documents/Job%20123/Air%20Test%20123.pdf
    MSE opens this file OK

    3. Subst P: F:\P (Subst used to create drive P: )
    file:///P:/ABC/Removal%20Documentation/Job%20Documents/Job%20123/Air%20Test%20123.pdf
    MSE displays
    Hmm, we can’t reach this page.

    Physically this file is the same as Example 1 but MSE does not find the file.

    Does anyone know if this is likely to be fixed or should I look for a different PDF Reader?

    :)

  2. Computer Freezes when Opening PDF File

    This refers to corrupted Microsoft Edge component. So don't bother to install/ reinstall any PDF software, there is a problem in Edge. As for me I've just encountered the same issue with PDF files, and I don't have any 3rd party PDF app installed in my
    system as I use Microsoft Edge for opening PDF files. So something got corrupted today, so I got file explorer to freeze(((

    Microsoft Edge PDF file problems

    Hi Chaver,

    When I look at 1 vs. 3, I see a difference. Not sure if this is a typo but the directory on drive F: seems to have a folder called P in which the ABC folder resides. This is not showing in example 3 and may be the reason the file is not found.

    Hi Phil - No that is as it is - the P folder on the F: drive is used by Subst to create the P: drive. All the examples were swiped (ctrl C) from the address MSE was using - shown at the top on MSE.
