[Solved]PDF downloads open in old browser instead of Opera
kinnykat1 last edited by leocg
I recently got Opera, switching from Microsoft Edge. I haven't deleted the other browser yet, since some websites I use are not supported on Opera. However, when I try to open PDFs from the Downloads tab, they open in Edge, but I'd like them to open in Opera when I click.
How can I change this? It doesn't help that Edge crashes every time that I do open a download there. Is it possible for Opera to open them?

@kinnykat1 The other browser should still be associated with PDF files, you need to change it in Windows settings.

Right-click on a pdf in Windows, goto "Opera with", click "choose other program", check "always open with this app", and select Opera.
Or, goto start -> settings -> apps -> default apps -> choose default apps by file type, scroll down to "pdf" -> click the icon next to it and choose Opera.
