Pdf e-mail attchmnts open to word by default !

Postby SteveJ » Sat Aug 23, 2014 8:41 am

Hello,

When I receive an e-mail with a pdf attachment it opens as a word encoded document (e.g. garbage). I need to change the default settings for all e-mails haiving a pdf attachment but can't get to properties to change it.
How can i do this ?

Thanks in Advance,
SteveJ

For reliable solution Try this

Go to startmenu and type

Default programs and press ENTER

Click on '' associate a file type or protocol with specific program

search for .pdf extension,click on it

On top you have '' change program '' option,click on it and point it to adobe reader
