    When I am trying to download a file from the internet, an Edge window screen comes up with a screen showing a PDF file. I use Word from Office for text documents. How do I get a PDF file to open in Word?
    I don’t even know if I have a PDF program. The Edge screen does not give me a way to use Word.
    I have the Windows 10 newest download on my computer.
    Thanks for any help you might be able to offer.

      There is no default for open PDF in Microsoft Word. Word opens doc, docx by default. On Windows 10 Edge is the default handler for PDF files. Edge does give you the ability to save the PDF file. You can save the PDF file to your computer. You can then open MS Word and open the PDF file by using the file > open dialog.

    Thank you for all you’ve done to help me. I’d be lost without you. I keep seeing comments about downloading the latest ver. of Windows 10. I don’t know why people worry about it so much. I decided to let Microsoft download it in it’s own time. It downloaded about a week ago and all is well. I happened to open the computer while it was downloading, and I could tell by the messages that it was putting in the new version . Maybe I’m more patient than most people. Folks, you don’t have to do it yourself.
