This is such an obvious question that I feel stupid even asking... But....

In Chrome, I use the Acrobat DC extension to create PDFs from active web pages... Simple. Works AOK. No problemo...

However, I can't find a way to add Acrobat DC to Edge. Is such an extension simply not available? Is the API not available to allow Adobe developers to create such a beast? Is it available, but my GoogleFoo is too poor to find it?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks in advance.

Hugh

To be more blunt about it, Microsoft currently does not support such extensions/plug-ins and thus Adobe cannot supply one.

Thanks for the info. I suspected something of the sort, but was surprised when I couldn't readily find a simple answer. When I looked for extensions/plugins for Edge, I found very few available. I figured some sort of API availability issue.

Thanks again,

Hugh

Hugh,

Norton has a Password Vault and Search extension for Edge; Microsoft has an extension for OneNote 2016. I don't see any reason why Adobe could not now make an Acrobat DC extension for Edge. It would sure be appreciated.

Of course Microsoft can make extensions! You might find this interesting. Windows 10: Why does Microsoft Edge have only 70 extensions after a whole year? | ZDNet

Interestingly in 2015, Microsoft were saying "it would not support any add-ons except Flash Player" ActiveX support in Microsoft Edge Browser - Microsoft Community

I think there's a misunderstanding. 

 

Microsoft doesn't support the extension in MS Edge Browser but it does in Internet Explorer 11.

 

Micrososft does provide third-party support in the New Micrososft Edge browser which is Chrome-based.  Those are two completely different browsers.

 

It is basically a cloned web browser (as pretty much everything they do in my opinion).  Nevertheless, you can use this extension in this new web browser since it has an option to install add-on from other web-stores.  So you need to download the new Edge browser.

 

See slides below:

See the bottom left lower corner of the slide. That is how you activate support for third-party web browser extensions in the new MS Edge browser.

Note: This is about the 5th time I've posted this information since I joined the forums last year. Unless my Edge Browser is unique and different than everybody else, I really don't understand why is it that I don't see anyone yet acknowledging this fact.  And let me clear: I am not  a Micrososft fan boy.  But I think is time to move on past the "Jurassic-Park-web-broswers-star-wars-Era" (i.e. like the days  of Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer), and embrace the Microsoft suck from time to time.

 

There's plenty of other great Chrome-based web browser that you can experiment with as well..

Hi there,

thanks for posting this. I have the extension installed in Edge, but when I click on teh acrobat icon I do not see the option to open in acrobat, as you show in your screen shot. The only option I get is to go to Actobat online.

any additional help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Michael
