Open PDFs in Edge WITHOUT Making it Default

Up until a month ago, I was able to open PDFs downloaded f/ Edge, in Edge - Edge was NOT the default (and I don't want it to be). I have the Adikbe Acrobat Extension. 


I do NOT want Edge set as the default) [hoping this will deter the autobot responses about setting it as default], but I need to be able to open PDFs in Edge in order for a work-related extension to work.


I also have the Adobe Acrobat extension (which I had before). All settings in Edge and the Adobe Extension are unchanged. So IDK if it's an Adobe setting? An Edge setting I'm missing? Some new glich f/ a Windows update? Glitch in the Adobe Extension?


Any advice (except "set Edge as default") is appreciated! I keep having to switch the default back/forth b/t Adobe/Edge and it's a hige PIA!
