How to Open PDFs With Adobe Automatically


Windows operating systems automatically configure all PDF files to open within an installed PDF viewer such as Adobe Reader. If you installed a different PDF viewer after installing Adobe Reader, the operating system will usually select the former as the default PDF viewer. You must manually configure the PDF file properties if you want to continue opening files automatically though Adobe Reader.

  • Right-click any PDF file on your computer and select "Properties."

  • Click the tab labeled "General." Next, click the "Change" button next to "Opens With."

  • Highlight "Adobe Reader" by clicking it. Next, click the box next to "Always use the selected program" and click "OK."

  • Click "Apply" to configure all PDF files to open automatically in Adobe Reader.
