adobe PDF in opera

  • Hi,

    Egnyte requires me to use adobe as a PDF viewer. Is there a way to make adobe reader the defaule PDF reader in opera 45?


  • In Settings there is an option to open PDF files with the default application.

  • I did that earlier but the same error in egnyte popped up. How do I see if it is Adobe Reader or the build-in opera reader? The pdf interface with and without activated "default application" looks identical. Btw. I did restart opera after ticking/unticking the box.

  • If you're seeing it in Opera, then Opera is not using Adobe. Chromium-based browsers do not use the Adobe plug-in, they either open it in the browser (with their own plug-in) or open it in a separate program. Go into Windows settings and make sure Adobe is set as the default program for PDF files.
