Hi! I'm encountering a problem on Windows 11 (22h2, 23H2). I'm unable to set Adobe Acrobat as the default PDF reader. it keeps reverting to MS Edge immediately.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? Could it be a bug with an update?
Thank you for your help.

Hi @diligencedreary

Yes, this can be a bit annoying. Here’s a straightforward solution that should help you set Adobe Acrobat as your default PDF reader:

  1. Right-click on any PDF file on your computer.
  2. Select "Open with" and then "Choose another app."
  3. In the list that appears, select Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  4. Make sure to check the box that says "Always use this app to open .pdf files."
  5. Click "OK."
This should set Adobe Acrobat as your default PDF reader. If it keeps reverting back to Edge, try uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Acrobat, then repeat the steps above. Let me know if this works for you!
