Google Chrome cannot print when the built-in pdf viewer is missing

The error message “Google Chrome cannot print when the built-in pdf viewer is missing” is in the print preview screen when I try to print anything from Chrome. It also circles and does not recognize my printer in “Destination”.  Two days after installing Google Chrome on my new Windows 10 Pro computer, I installed Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, although Acrobat Reader would have been enough for my purposes.  Then I noticed I cannot print in Chrome.  Reinstalling Chrome, and accepting a Google Chrome extension from Reader DC, and uninstalling Reader DC all did not help.  I can print a Google Map if I start in Edge with google.com/maps and use the print command in Edge.

Any advice to fix this?

I don't know what has happened to Chrome, but I can tell you that the "built in PDF viewer" is a part of Chrome and comes with Chrome. Acrobat Reader isn't involved and can't replace it. Maybe reinstalling Chrome will help, but a Chrome forum may be best to ask.
