    MSEdge – how to disable as default PDF viewer

    After some last Windows10 update the MSEdge was set as the default PDF files viewer. When I switch it back to Acrobat, it returns again as before. I tried it more times using the right mouse with checked option, in settings/default apps by file type, nothing helps. No option to see the Edge setting. Can it be set somehow?
    OR – how to get rid completely that loutish sw? Normal way doesn’t work…
    Thanks for any advice

    Didn't test but I think it's this:

    And also this in Settings -> Apps -> Choose by file type:

    I've been using Foxit PDF reader for some time, maybe try and see if you like it better than Adobe PDF reader.

    well, issue resolved - reinstalled Edge, instead of v87, last one 89.0.774.54. thx for reactions.
    Foxit PDFReader is ok too, but i prefer that one.
