    Problems viewing pdf docs in Win 10 mail app


    Hallo.

    Sometimes when i get emails with pdf-document included then i cant wiev all of them direct in the mail app.
    When i see that the icon is correct for acrobat reader then it works, but sometimes thre isnt a acrobat reader icon and when i click it windows ask me where i want to save the file.

    If i save the file it works fine.

    But i want to wiev ALL pdf-docs in my mail app....

    I have tried to reinstall acrobat reader but it didnt help

    Do someone have a solution?

    By default, Microsoft Edge is the program to open pdf files.

    What happens if you just right click at a pdf file and click Open.
    Does it open in Edge ?

    I have identified the problem....
    And it is that windows says that some of the pdf files i recievs doesnt have a filetype.
    I send a testmail with 2 pdf files and then i could open 1 of them and the other i need to save at my computer to open.
    Later i send the same mail again and now i could open the other one but not that one i could open in the first mail...

    If i save them they starts direct in Adobe Reader.

    ................I send a testmail with 2 pdf files and then i could open 1 of them ........................

    Please clarify.......................
    The one you were able to open. Was it opened in Edge or in Adobe Reader ?

    Also, do you want all pdf files open in Edge or in Adobe Reader ?

    No, this problem isnt solved.

    I opens my mail-app, opens an email with pdf included. Single-click on the pdf file and a get an preview with Adobe.
    But when i click on some pdf-files it just opens a "save as"-dialog and then i need to open them from my harddrive. I dosent get an direct preview... Thats my problem...

    Here are a few methods to set Adobe as the default program to open all pdf files.....................

    1. The old fashioned way:
    Right click at Start > Control Panel > top right, click View by : > select either large or small > click Default programs > click Set your default programs > wait for loading > left side, scroll down to Adobe > click it > right side, click set this program as default > click OK when done.

    2. Left click at Start > Settings > System > left side, Default apps > right side, scroll down near the bottom, click Choose default application by file type > left side, scroll down to pdf > right side, make sure it says Adobe Acrobat Reader > if it sayd Microsoft Edge, click it and select adobe.

    3. Go to one of the pdf files saved in your computer > right click at it > click Open with > at the bottom, click Choose another app > locate Adobe and click it > check the box " Always use this app to open pdf files > click OK when done.
    If you don't have Open With on your right click context menu, use this tutorial to install :
    Open with Context Menu - Add or Remove in Windows 10
