    MS Edge and PDF files - High-jacked

    What has happened with my Adobe Acrobat XI and MS Edge. Whenever I want create or open a PDF file, MS Edge takes over and displays the file. This is a recent occurrence, but it persists. Even though Acrobat asks me to make it my default for PDF files, which I do, Edge is there on the next usage. How do I get Edge out of this loop?

  2. PDF report not opening in MS Edge

    The suggestions of Rohit Siddegowda do not work. I am having the same problems. PDF links on websites will not open in MS Edge. They work fine in every other browser. This seems like a MS Edge issue that Microsoft needs to address.

  3. Edge will not open PDF files

    1st before answering please note these things have already been checked

    • Edge has all its program defaults, already checked and verified
    • Edge is the default PDF handler, already verified
    • Edge cleared reset
    • reset IE11
    • Made sure IE11 has all it's defaults except is not the default browser, edge is
    Here is what happens, click a PDF, edge opens with a blank window

    then IE 11 pops up asking of I want to save or open the file

    Mind you the file is already on the hard drive

    If you click save, of course it saves it, if you click OPEN, edge comes back, opens another blank tab and then IE 11 comes back asking to save the file.

    If I right click the pdf file and choose open with, and pick IE11, it also asks to save but will not display the pdf doc

    Any pdf doc

    There are no error messages at all

    The PC only has windows 10 installed, no adobe, no 3rd party apps etc

    This happened apparently after the latest updates, no none MS induced changes have been done to the PC

    Now, how does one fix this?
