We have PDF documents in SharePoint 2013 document library. We have installed both Adobe Acrobat and Reader on our machine. When we open PDF document, it opens up in Reader by default. But we want the document should be opened in Adobe acrobat instead by default. How we can switch this default behavior. we don't want to uninstall Adobe reader due to some reasons. any useful suggestion ?

    As per my understanding, browser simply call the default application of the system. Set Adobe Acrobat as default PDF application of the system and it should work. – Mohit Feb 13 '15 at 13:20
