Open PDFs in Adobe Acrobat Browser Plugin by Default

Michael Tarantino 0 Reputation points

Our organization recently integrated the Adobe Acrobat plugin for Sharepoint, which works very well for viewing and editing PDFs in-browser directly from the Sharepoint environment. That said, it takes multiple click-throughs to get there.

Is it possible to skip the PDF Sharepoint viewer and have PDFs open using the Adobe Acrobat plugin directly? In other words, I would like to skip the page + click seen in the screenshot below.

Thanks for any advice available!

    Per my test, after finishing the integration the Adobe Acrobat plugin with SharePoint, you just need to click the PDF File, then the file will be opened through Adobe Acrobat directly.

    And the menu under Open button cannot be changed.
