Hi Jerry

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described, MS Edge is Hijacking the PDF ownership in Win 10

 

It is a known issue from Microsoft. Please check out the suggestions made in the correct answer marked in the similar discussion https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/microsoft-edge-keeps-hijacking-my-pdfs/m-p/10754576

 

Also, you may check out the similar discussion i have found on Microsoft support page here https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/microsoft-edge-keeps-hijacking-my-pdfs/m-p/10754576 and see if that helps.

Amal

Hi Ama-Adobe-Girl,

I tried all these things and no one is working. 😞 😞 😞 😞

After Windows 10 restart, the PDF is associated/assigned to MS Edge.

I also tried to uninstall the Edge but without any effect. 

It is terrible.

Hi Jerry,

I think that I found a solution for your problem:

 

1/ download the SetUserFTA from this page bottom:

https://kolbi.cz/blog/2017/10/25/setuserfta-userchoice-hash-defeated-set-file-type-associations-per-...

 

2/ Create a new directory in your system:

C:\SetUserFTA

or you can create "C:\MoronicProgrammersFromMicrosoft" if it satisfies you more 🙂 or it is possible to use

the "C:\SatiaNadellaIsBaldHeadedAndUncapableOverpaidManagerWithSmallPenisAndWithoutTesticles".

 

3/ Extract all files from downloaded SetUserFTA.zip into the directory C:\SetUserFTA

 

4/ Run gpedit.msc from the "Find" icon which is placed left bottom of the Windows windows and the "Local Group Policy Editor" is opened.

 

5/ On the left side just find the item "User Configuration / Windows Configuration" and the sub-item "Scripts" and on the right side the item LogON. Add new item on TabPage named "Scripts" named:

 

C:\SetUserFTA\SetUserFTA.exe

 

and working parameters must be

 

.pdf AcroExch.Document.DC  

 

And click to OK.And thats all folks. Happy day.

If you are looking for more information take a look over here:
