How do I get a .pdf file to open as Adobe and not the browser. I never meant to change any setting; just upgraded from Windows 8 to 10 and from Jaws 14 to 17.

Or you can open the browser you want and set the “default” option there. Doing so will automatically un-default the current default browser. I’ve found no difference among browsers in the way PDF files are handled, especially if you have PDF files set to open in Adobe instead of the browser.
True, I’m using Windows 7, but I imagine these conditions work across Windows platforms.
I did what you suggested and it did not work.
I’d suggest you change your default browser to Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox depending on which one you wish to use. To do this, hit your left windows key to bring up the search box. Then type default browser and arrow to that choice and press enter. Tab if necessary and you will find Edge which is likely your default web browser. Hit the space barr on that button and you should get a choice of browsers to choose from. Pick the browser you wish and press enter. Once changed, Edge will not launch automatically. It is likely you cannot uninstall Edge, but even if you could, I wouldn’t recommend that as at some point, Jaws will work with it and hopefully, it will be a better experience than Internet Exploder is. Yes, I meant to say Exploder.
When I try to open an attachment in Outlook 2013 using Jaws 17 and Windows 10, I right clicked and pressed enter on open and was hoping to get a choice of which program to open the file, but it automatically opens it in Microsoft Edge, rendering the file inaccessible to me. Should I uninstall Edge, will that effect Jaws or Windows OS or how to I get rid of it being the default program to open files in Outlook?
Please advise! Thank you.
