    Attachments in Gmail are defaulting to Edge


    I got a return label e-mailed to me in Gmail. When I click on the attachment to either download it, or open the PDF, I get error messages. I am on Gmail in Chrome. If I try to download, it says I cannot do this (open Edge) under the Administrative account, switch accounts. If I try to open the PDF, it tries to save it to OneDrive, which I do not use.

    I have UAC disabled in the registry. This is causing the Admin account error although I don't understand why.
    All my download settings are set to My Documents, so I don't get the OneDrive thing.
    I do not use OneDrive, Edge, or any MS apps.

    How do I allow downloads to my preferred documents folder?

    Well, one of many problems I cannot solve with 10. I will solve it by reverting to 7 where my PC acts like a PC instead of a chimera.
