I have Nitro Pro 13 as pdf default in Win10. When any pdf is downloaded, Nitro automatically starts up. How to stop that?


Recommended Posts


I'm running the latest ver of Nitro Pro 13 as the default pdf app in Win10.  When I'm downloading pdfs, it's very irritating that each download is opened up automatically by Nitro.  I just want to get my downloads done.  I've looked through Preferences in Nitro and at Default Apps (as well as searching here and on the web for a solution) to see if there was an option to turn that off, but I've had no luck.  Seems like something that would have an easy fix.  What am I missing?  TIA for any ideas/help.

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

This behavior is configured in the web browser you use to download the PDF file. If you are using Google Chrome, you may want to check the default behavior. 
In Chrome, go to Settings > Privacy and Security > Site  Settings > Additional content Settings > PDF Documents, you will have the following options:

  • Download PDFs
  • Open PDFs in Chrome

In Edge, go to Settings > Downloads then turn on / off the options based on your preferences. 

Kind regards,
