Using the Set Defaults by App link made this much easier. I didn't have to navigate the long list of file types to set Adobe as my default PDF reader.
Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Subject: Re: PDF file automatically goes into Edge
I am setting up a new computer and just made this adjustment myself. I agree with Robin, it is a very long list you have to work through before you find .pdf but it is there. Once you find it making the change is easy.
I followed Steve’s instructions, as I needed to make this change, too. I did not find PDF in the initial list of default app settings, but there was a link to other file types. I clicked that and was able to move down the long list of alphabetical file types and click that button to make the adjustment to Adobe.
Firstly press your Windows key, then type Default Programs and press enter.
Now tab around until you hear PDF then Edge, which will be a button. Press space on it, and change it with up and down arrows to Acrobat Reader DC.
Now any PDF file will open in DC.
All the best
Hello, I downloaded a PDF file from my bank’s web site. I put my cursor on the file and pressed enter. It opens the file into Microsoft Edge. Jaws cannot read anything. I even put the cursor on the file and used the Jaws OCR function and that didn’t work. Do I need to turn on or off certain settings? OR is there a way for it to go into Acrobat reader?
