Adobe extension for Microsoft Edge - what does it do?

The company I work at upgraded everyone last fall to Windows 11, Edge & OneDrive (which has been an f'ing nightmare).  One of the many, many problems is that we have to frequently go into Windows settings and change the default app for PDFs back & forth between Edge and Acrobat depending upon what we are doing.  Someone suggested I install the Adobe extension for Edge to avoid this problem. So I asked my IT department if that was possible (like most IT departments these days, ours generally forbids installing add ons, extensions and registry hacks). They told me that they had reviewed the Adobe extension and had discussed it with Adobe, and determined it "it had the same functionality as the edge browser so we didn’t bother to install it."  Seems really odd Adobe would create an extension for Edge that didn't add anything.  I don't want to say my IT department is lieing, but they are extreemly set in their ways.  So I am posting here to see from anyone uses the extension why you use it and what it adds.  Thanks!

You can combine, compress, convert , edit, and markup PDFs with comments using the web extension. For more information please check the help page https://www.adobe.com/acrobat/pdf-viewer-extension.html

 

Hope this information will help.

So the extension does nothing to make Edge handle PDFs better, it just lets us convert web pages into PDF (I don't know why anyone would want to do that, but there's always someone who wants to do some odd thing). I see it also gives a shortcut to allow us to open PDFs in Acrobat. Presumably that's for people who have had to set Edge as the default app for PDFs. Windows 11 stupidly forces people to bounce back & forth between Edge and Acrobat, so that shortcut sounds helpful. If we use that shortcut to open a PDF in Acrobat, are all th normal Acrobat functions (such as OCR, merging PDFs, deleting or extracting pages, adding bookmarks and comments, etc.) available?  If they are, I will point that out to my IT department. 

 

Thanks

Thanks, but can you just answer my question i.e., are all th normal Acrobat functions (such as OCR, merging PDFs, deleting or extracting pages, adding bookmarks and comments, etc.) available in the PDFs I open if I open them using Acrobat's Edge extension? I may be dumb, but I didn't see anything that talks about that in the link you posted.
