  1. .PDF File Won't open


    No matter if I double click, right click "open with" the HOW DO YOU WANT TO OPEN THIS FILE pops up and no matter what program I choose it pops right back up after about 2 sec without the file opening. I can open PDF files from inside an application such as Adobe Reader however. I've gone into Default Programs, I've tried Reg Edit. Nothing works.

  2. Trouble Opening PDF's

    Hi Parker,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:

    • Does the issue persist in Edge browser?
    • Do you get similar error when you open the PDF file in Adobe reader?


    Check if you are facing similar issue in Edge browser.



    Step 1: Open PDF file in Adobe reader and check if you are facing similar issue.



    To open PDF file directly from Adobe reader, follow the steps below:



    • Open Adobe application and click on Edit.
    • Click on Preferences and select Internet.
    • Uncheck Display PDF in Browser option and check if you are able to open the PDF file without getting the error code.


    Step 2: If you are able to open PDF file in Adobe reader, I suggest you to
    Turn off Internet Explorer,
    enable it again and check if the issue is resolved.



    For further assistance, I suggest you to post your query in Adobe support forum.

    Thank you.

  3. microsoft print to pdf files will not open after saving

    We suggest that you save the PDF files on your device and check if the issue persists. You may also want to associate the PDF files to Microsoft Edge as the default program to make sure that you have a default application that will open all of your PDF files.
    Here are the steps:

    • Search for Default Programs.
    • Go to Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
    • Select the .pdf file type and then click the Change program button on the upper right of the
      Set Associations window.
    • Choose Microsoft Edge and then click OK.
    Let us know how it goes.

    .PDF File Won't open

    Unable to open PDF file directly from WINZIP file

    Thanks for the help. I tried the suggested steps. It did not work for me. When clicked on pdf files, now it opens with acrobat reader as opposed to Edge. But then I still cannot open pdf files directly form zip file.
