    Because you keep on right clicking and of your OCD personality, the real question is: How do I kill Edge?

    The given method in post #7 works if you have more than 2 apps in the OpenWithList.

    Edit: After a clean install, Edge opens pdf files default, but drag and drop in Libre Office writer works

    I don't think that is possible but let try.

    Open the Registry Editor by hitting Start and typing regedit.

    Press Enter to open Registry Editor.

    In the Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key:

    Inside the FileExts key, you’ll see a list of all the file extensions registered on your PC.

    Found .pdf file extension under that key, click the OpenWithList subkey.

    On the right-hand side of Registry Editor, found the Microsoft Edge value data and delete it.
    I can confirm this does work with everything else though.
