any fixes to no preview pane for pdf's in windows 10? Acrobat Pro 9.0

Hi.. fresh install of Windows 10 machine, Office 365.

currently DOES show office files/pic files  in preview Pane.  Does NOT show pdf's in preview pane..

installed is Acrobat Pro 9.0.  Acrobat No reader installed.. I've encountered various issues in past with both and decided to just work with Pro 9.0.  

i'd rather not upgrade the Pro and wondering if there is a fix.

Preview works fine for me in Outlook and Windows 10.

But Acrobat 9 is long out of support and not compliant with Windows 10. So you need to upgrade or give up the feature.

You are welcome. I am using Adobe Acrobat V2017 now and V2015 before that which also worked
