Default .pdf file association not being set

Posted

I just want to open PDF files without having to click open with every time. I have tried the following: 1. "Open With"->"Choose another app"->"Always use this app to open .pdf files" 2. Control Panel, change default apps, change by file association 3. Control panel, manage default apps, Firefox, pdf set to Chrome when I'm trying to manage Firefox 4. Options->Applications->Preview in Firefox 5. Uninstalled, reinstalled, restarted my computer 3 times each.

Windows 10 64 bit

I am having this issue on my laptop as well, all of the above I have tried and all have failed. I try to set the default association through control panel, my computer refreshes, but there are no changes.

I need to change the action to be taken when downloading a PDF file every other day. I set it to Adobe Acrobat and it changes back to Save File without my knowledge, sometimes in the middle of the day.

This is continuing without and other changes to FF. It doesn't even matter if the sun is out or not. <g>
