Default reader

So, as you may know, Windows 10 Mobile is now forcing its users to use Microsoft Edge by making it the only default app for .http .https and .pdf file extensions. There is a way around this and it consists of using the Interop Tools. Now, the problem is that user must have the app's family name (in registry) in order to change this.

My question is: Where am I supposed to find Adobe Reader's family name, I tried in HKEY-LOCAL-MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/CURRENT VERSION, but it seems not to be there.

Please help

they force Edge as a default because it will sync with desktop systems... the fact that it is easy to spy on had nothing to do with it

you can use the "Get-AppxPackage" code to find | remove any installed package within an Admin level powershell but a registry hack is not a reliable solution
