Opening files

2 posts in this topic

If PDFelement is the default for pdf files, shouldn't the program open when I double click on the file or right click and say open or open with.  It doesn't.  The ONLY way for me to open a file is to open the application first and then drag the file.  Is this the way it is supposed to be?  (I doubt it!)  How do I fix this?

Hi Michael, 


Thanks for reaching out. This is definitely not the way it's supposed to be! 

How did you set PDFelement as the default app? 


These are the steps I took and I've had success with it so far: 


1) Pick any PDF file and right click. 

2) Make sure it says "Open with PDFelement"

3) Click on "Change all"

When I double click on a PDF to open it, it opens in PDFelement for me. Let me know if this works for you!
