Extension for Nitro to Add to Edge


Recommended Posts


Unable to have Edge default to Nitro Pro - MS assistant stated there needs to be an extension for Nitro to add to Edge.  Is that correct, and if so, is there an extension?

Greetings @ColoradoBlueSkies

Thank you for reaching out through our Community Forums!

We do not have a plugin for MS Edge as Microsoft has dropped support for ActiveX which is the technology behind Nitro Pro's web plugins. The only options in Edge are to open the PDF in the built-in viewer or to download the PDF.  

By default, Microsoft Edge tries to use its internal PDF viewer when dealing with PDF files in the browser. We recommend you set MS Edge to download PDFs and that way PDFs are downloaded and when the download is complete, you get an option to open the PDF with your default PDF program. 

You make this change in Edge by going into Settings, Cookies and site permissions, PDF documents, and enabling the Always download PDF files setting.  

Kind regards,
