CCleaner Browser + pdf files

Recommended Posts

I have uninstalled CCleaner.

I can no longer open any pdf files as they have migrated to CCleaner brwoser somehow.

I no longer  wish to use CCleaner but I do need to read pdf files.

 

Please advise,

Thanks Tim

Right-click on a PDF file, select open with, choose what you want to open them with from the list it shows, and also select 'always use this'

Thanks Hazelnut,

I may need to update Adobe software as it seems to be in the background at the moment.

The phrase 'always use this' does not come up when I right click.

Thanks for now.

After right clicking a PDF file and selecting 'Open with' don't select the programme directly there - instead select 'Chose another app' at the bottom of the menu and then you will be shown the list and the 'Always use this app to open.....' tickbox.

A pdf file opened from Thunderbird onto CCleaner browser, but the file can't be downloaded or Saved As to my hard drive Documents. I get a message "Failed - Network error". Some pdfs can be saved but many cannot. I never had this problem with Chrome. What gives?

There are different types of PDF files which can be handled differently by software.
It may be that the CCleaner browser can save some types but not others?

I don't have the CCleaner browser myself, but it may be worth taking a look in your settings.

For instance Firefox recognises 5 types of PDF and can handle each type differently:

Or you could change things so that PDFs open into something other than the browser, see my previous post.
