How do I stop Adobe from being the default pdf app?

Posted

I made the mistake of selecting always on the app and now whenever I try to open a pdf, I get an Adobe error about my connection. Anyway, I want to reset the selection. But when I try to clear default, it clears, but there is no change, adobe opens and I get the same error. A long press on the link does nothing.

My suggestions are as follows, 1). You may reinstall (uninstall/Install) adobe 2). You may install any other PDF app,this time newly install app may ask about default App for PDF file, you can choose the Default app.
