For some reason, Acrobat Reader 64 bit DC started defaulting to print to file instead of my Windows default printer (an HP).  The file type is .PRN which I cannot open or print.

 

How can I get the app to default to my system printer?

 

Thanks

Change the default printer settings in the Windows control panel. Press [Windows]+[I], select [Devices] > [Devices and Printers]. There right click the Adobe PDF printer, select [Printer properties] and turn off the check box for [Print as file].
