Can't get .pdf files to open properly

    Can't get .pdf files to open properly

    I have verified in 'Control Panel' that I have specified by default that the 'Reader' app is to open my .pdf files. However, when I select a .pdf file in my 'My Documents' folder they won't open. A previously opened .pdf file does open though. Any suggestions friends? Thanks.

    EDIT: I downloaded 'Adobe Reader' from the Windows Store & made it the default for .pdf files. Now my .pdf files open correctly. I uninstalled 'Reader' app.
