Adobe Asking for Sign-In on Windows PCS Before Opening PDFs


How can I open a PDF if I am unable to sign-in to Adobe? 


When opening a PDF on my Windows PC Adobe is asking me to sign in. To resolve this so that you can open your PDF file, do the following: 


Option 1: Sign into Adobe using your Adobe account

Option 2: Switch the default application from Adobe Acrobat to Adobe Reader, which also opens PDFs but doesn’t require signing in

There are several ways to do this, here is one efficient method: 

Using a PDF file on your computer (not in an email), right mouse click on the file to open the context menu


Select Open with, then select Choose another app


First select Always use this app to open .pdf files, then select Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

If successful, PDF’s will now open in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC without requiring signing in rather than in Adobe Acrobat which does require signing in.
