Hello - The Nitro PDF association keeps changing to Windows Edge from time to time.  I change it in the Windows setting to Nitro and it still randomly changes.

Hello @Lori Barnard,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

Windows 10 controls the default PDF application. If your default PDF application is not Nitro PDF Pro, here is how to set it.

a. Find a PDF file, right Click then go to Open With then "Choose Default Program" or "Choose Program".
b. Navigate or scroll to the program you want to use to open your PDF file and then select the Nitro program.
c. Check the box for always to Always Use the Selected Program and select OK.

Unfortunately this is a known issue with Microsoft Windows 10 changing the the default PDF viewer to MS Edge especially on updates.

You can Google this to find various other suggestions but usually when you manually reset the default PDF app, it sticks.

Thank you for choosing Nitro and I hope this helps.
