    I download a document and it automatically becomes an Edge pdf that I can only print, close or send via email only if I let Edge be the ruler of my email. This is a problem. I take classes on line and the drop boxes for assignments will not accept an Edge pdf. I want to submit my resume for a few jobs and I can't do a damn thing with the Edge pdf.
    How dare Microsoft to assume and decide for me what I want.

    What can I do about this? Is there a way to disable Edge? Is there a way to do a "save as" or copy and paste with all of my formatting?

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Just out of curiosity, have you done that yourself before recommending it to others? It's a pretty invasive procedure where you can simply set a different browser like Firefox as your default. Edge is integrated into the OS, and forcefully removing it could affect other parts of the OS in a negative way.

    That being said, in Edge I am able to right-click the PDF document and click "save as" (as the only right-click menu option)

    Yupp instead of removing the browser, you can just set adobe reader as your default pdf reader :)

    control panel > programs > default programs > associate a file type... program > scroll till you find ".pdf" > select it > click on change program (upper-right hand)
