Hi Leonardj73333493,

As explained, you might have set Acrobat Reader DC as default application to open all the files.

Assuming that you are working on Windows computer?

You can change the default application to open the pictures or other file format by following the steps mentioned below-

  • Go to the file location >Select a file that you do not want to open through the Reader DC (Eg. any picture)
  • Right click on the file
  • Select "Open With"> Choose another App
  • Select the related application
  • Check the dialogue box "Always use this app to open files"
  • Ok

The default application to open the pictures will be changed to the one that you have selected.

Let us know if it works.

Regards,

Akanchha

Hey kadenc42758436 

What is that you were trying to download from web? Is that a JPG file? Once file is downloaded, is it opening in Acrobat?

If yes, you can change the default app following the steps given above.

Thanks,

Akanchha
