    Windows 10 Keeps Changing App that PDF Files Open In


    At least once a week I download a PDF File and when I open it, it's in some strange App
    that has no name.
    When I try to "Open As" in Adobe, I must reset my File Apps page to open PDF Files in
    Adobe.

    How do I stop Windows from hi-jacking my PDF Files and trying to force me into using
    some app that is clearly inferior to Adobe.

    Thanks,

    Richard S.

    then choose Sumatra from the list and check the 'Always use this app to open .pdf files' to make it stick

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    PDF Default App Keeps Getting Changed


    I complained about this a while ago and followed the suggestion of another ListMember. Well, like the Borg, Windows
    has adapted.

    I prefer Adobe for my pdf reader, but as many times as I change the default to Adobe, Windows keeps changing it
    back to Edge (lousy pdf reader).

    How can I put a stake into this thing and keep the deafault app I want.

    Thanks,

    Richard S.
