    Is there a way to force Edge to download PDF Files, or open in Acrobat Reader?

    Thanks, but I want to download the original, not print it.

    Windows 10 Pro,

    I am running Windows 10 and I have went into default programs menu and I have set Adobe Acrobat as my default PDF reader. It is very easy to do, go to start and enter default programs. Of course you have to download Adobe Acrobat first, but still a very quick and easy thing to do.

    Perhaps check the PDF program's options and see if theres something that does what you want.

    Just change the default PDF reader to Adobe Acrobat. I changed my to Foxit Reader and it works great in Firefox. I do not use Edge.

    Looks like everyone is happy with having .pdf files open inside your preferred browser? I'm trying to figure out how to have online links to PDF documents open those documents in the Adobe Acrobat/Reader window, when using the Edge browser. Not in Edge itself. Edge dumbs down the PDF manipulation options, the same way Windows 10 dumbs down O.S. options, as compared to Windows 7. This new guy running Microsoft, Satya Nadella, must really have a low opinion of the average consumer's intelligence.

    Absolutely not. As in OP, my preferred option is to download any PDF files, but failing that, open in Acrobat Reader.
