    How do I open a pdf file from within Edge without saving it first?

    I have Edge as my default browser. I have Foxit reader as my default pdf reader. When I click on a pdf within Edge, I have a choice to save or save as. If I choose one of these options I can open the pdf in Foxit from my desktop. How do I get the option to open the pdf without first saving it?

    Edge will read a pdf file inside the browser. You will need to change the default read program from Foxit to Edge.
    If you have a saved pdf you then can use Open With and select Foxit.

    Okay thanks Jim. I was hoping there was a way to do it without making Edge the default PDF reader.
