    How do I change default PDF program from Microsoft Edge to Adobe?

    After the update of Windows 10 yesterday and noticed that all my PDF files open with Microsoft Edge not Adobe Reader? I would like to know how to change the PDF set up in default with Adobe not Microsoft Edge? All I see all the PDF files with the icon, Microsoft Edge on it.

    Don't try to set defaults from within Adobe.
