Re: setting Adobe as default PDF reader

Barbara Black

Thanks Dan – I am using Windows 10 (JAWS 18) and I pressed space bar and then enter, closed it and then tried opening a PDF document and it still opened with Edge.  I’m not sure what I am doing wrong.


In the meantime, I realized that, instead of just hitting enter on the file I want to open (from explorer file list), I can choose “open with” from shift F12 and that seems to get around the problem.  Thoughts on this? o

Hi,, If you are using Windows 10 and you hit enter on Adobe you are good to go.  There is no “save” button just close your settings center.

Hi all-

My computer had been set  to open all PDFs in Adobe  But when I changed my default browser from IE to Chrome, my computer changed my PDF reader from Adobe to Edge which I cannot get JAWS to read.  .


I tried going to applications/settings, change defaults and gone to list of applications.  I pressed enter on Adobe but  can’t figure out how to complete the process.


Any suggestions?
