How to ditch Microsoft Edge as default PDF reader on Windows 10

On Windows 10, Microsoft Edge is the default web browsing experience, which also functions as the system’s default PDF reader on every installation.

Although viewing and editing PDF documents is a convenient feature, the experience offers limited functionalities compared to other applications. However, if you prefer a more capable program, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader (opens in new tab), Xodo, or SumatraPDF, you can always change the Windows 10 settings to disable Microsoft Edge and set another app as the default PDF reader every time you open this kind of file format on your computer.
