    Want my PDF reader back


    Hi there

    was looking for a program to merge pdf pages
    This seems fine. I don't care about the interface so long as it does its job --which it does !!!.
    At work we use Adobe Acrobat which is hideous and is only licensed for work - at home though was looking for ability to merge / add pages etc.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    I just got an update Today. As a result, my PDF reader no longer works. *Sleepy Its telling me to use Edge as a reader. I've installed Sumatra Reader, but would like the Microsoft PDF reader back. Any way to get it working again?

    :)

  3. pdf reaeder not work

    Thanks MR. Krishna for ur support.

    I were using pdf from my hard disk. Before resetting my windows I was use default window pdf app "Reader" to open it but after resetting I have to download an additional app "acrobat reader" to open it. I want to use reader app instead of Microsoft edge
    or acrobat reader. so how can I get it back again...?

  4. Want my PDF reader back

    Please bring back Reader - I am going to a third-party app, NOT Edge

    I have to agree with Michael. This was a fantastically simple PDF reader.

    I used it on my Surface as it allowed me to sign PDF's simply by using my Surface Pen (I didn't need to select commenting or any other option - just lift the pen and sign!).

    It worked perfectly as I imagine most PDF users want a PDF reader to work - no muss, no fuss.

    EDGE?? Come on Microsoft, are you really pushing us to use a browser for something so simple as PDF reading?

    Please bring the Reader app back, pretty please?!

    The Reader App has been discontinued...

    ... installing it is merely a prompt to switch to Edge for PDF Reader! *Confused

    I suggest Adobe Reader Touch, it's quite good...

    I forgot...
    Xodo is also an excellent one, runs a little heavier than the Adobe one but, more feature rich!

    Want my PDF reader back

    I tried Xodo. No. For some reason, the words printing out are blurry. I went back to Sumatra, and I get sharp words. Haven't tried Adobe yet. Only got 3-1/2 stars.

    I've been using the Nitro Reader for many years I does a lot more for the money than either Adobe Reader or Microsoft PDF

    The Best Free PDF Reader and Viewer | Nitro PDF Reader

    THe reader that is More than enough for most users is the totally free version The Best Free PDF Reader and Viewer | Nitro PDF Reader There is a fully fledged PDF package that creates files and all sorts of Fancy things but I've never needed It

    I also run a copy of the Free version of PDFCreator which runs as a Virtual Printer and will print any document from other applications as a PDF with lots of control on format & Security, but will also create various graphics files

    pdfforge | PDFCreator - Download for free, download pdf printer, pdf writer, pdf maker

    Imo, one of the best free (basic version) PDF programs is PDF Split and Merge which gives features often only in paid versions ie ability to delete pages, add pages, split pdf, merge pdfs etc. Maybe not the best reader but without a doubt a very useful tool to have.

    Nitro works. I just noticed something. Nitro and Sumatra both installed thru the computer. (Setup.exe?) Both are printing clear and sharp. Xodo and Adobe were Apps that installed ( in the background). These were blurry. Funny thing, the Microsoft Reader was an App, but it printed sharp.

    Thats enough. I have Sumatra and Nitro to play with.

    Thanks everyone for the help.

  12. I personally like the free version of Foxit Reader to either export documents to .PDF or print to .PDF with the option to use high quality 2400 DPI resolution.
