    PDF Default App Keeps Getting Changed

    I prefer Adobe Reader for pdf files, but no matter how many times I set the default app to Adobe,
    it keeps getting changed back to MS Edge.

    How do I put a stake in this vampire !! ??

    That doesn't sound correct, unless you just upgraded Windows to a new build number.

    If you go to the Start menu and select Settings, then under Apps, what is shown as the Default App for a PDF?
