Your PDF files keep opening in Chrome even though you want to read and edit them with a specific program? If this is occurring, it’s typically a result of your Chrome settings or the default settings of another program. Your PDF may be opening in your Chrome rather than a PDF reader for a few common reasons. It’s conceivable that you don’t have a PDF reader software downloaded or you’ve set the default settings to open PDF files in a web browser instead of a PDF reader. If you want to change this so that you can open your PDFs elsewhere, keep reading to learn about a few quick fixes.

PDF files will now open in Acrobat DC.
