Windows 10 and opening / printing PDFs - user gets the save as box

Last Modified: 2017-12-11
On a windows 10 desktop, 2 machines have deveioped this issues:

Click on a link to open a PDF, like this:  https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040gi.pdf

and rather than open it in the browser (chrome, firefox, edge, ie all have same issue), they get a save as box.

I opened acrobat reader and set that as the default app for PDFs.
