    that is not needed, just select the default app for PDF files and that's all.

    Not at all. Whenever I do that, in a couple of hours or minutes, Windows automatically sets Edge again as the default pdf viewer. This is noted in the post I linked to.

    Thanks.
    I did append an underscore to that key. But after a few hours, Windows again assigns Edge as the default pdf viewer.

    If so, then You're a specially loved person by Microsoft to whom happens such a things. In any case, such things don't happen to me, nor have they ever happened, no matter what program I set to open .pdf files.
    I have regularly used Adobe Acrobat, Foxit Reader and Sumatra. No problem. Even if I set some other app as default, still not happen.
    Simply Microsoft loves You, that's it.

    kaljukass .......... Thank you for your personal , subjective reply .......... i didnt write that script ........... it was written to try to solve a problem ......... that i and others have regularly = The .pdf file association keeps changing to edge .......... so setting it to not be opened by edge in the file association section doesnt work permanently .

    Same with automatic updates . It turns itself back on again . That happened to me twice .

    Both problems have been talked about here on this site .

    I'm sorry I didn't realize right away that you're only posting to insult other people personally. Sorry to bother you.
    From now on, I won't see your grumbling messages anymore.
    You're just blocked for me as a malicious user, a typical troll.
    Live well!

    For me, creating and using this reg file succeeded in preventing Egde from being reassociated with pdfs, while no other method worked.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    ;File Types: .pdf
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\AppXd4nrz8ff68srnhf9t5a8sbjyar1cr723]
    "NoOpenWith"=""
    "NoStaticDefaultVerb"=""

    Why dont you apply custom application association xml to offline wim index or if you know how to do it on current installed online system.
