Help! Google Chrome Took Over My PDFs

Posted on
google chrome

Google Chrome’s latest update changes windows file associations for PDF Files, setting itself as the default reader. To switch it back to Adobe Acrobat you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Right Click on any PDF File and go to properties
  2. Next to Opens With, click Change
  3. Select Adobe Reader
  4. Hit OK

All of your pdf icons should change back to the Adobe one and when you go to open a pdf, adobe reader should now come up.
