How do I get my computer to try to open PDF files as PDF instead of Microsoft Word?

Question: Whenever I try to open a PDF file, my computer always attempts to open it as a word file rather than a PDF file, I can't read the PDF document normally in Microsoft Word. How do I change that?

Solution: To view PDF documents, you need a PDF reader, such as Foxit PDF Reader, XChange PDF Viewer, Adobe Reader, etc.

2 steps to change the default program opening the PDF file to a PDF reader:
(1) If you don't have a PDF reader installed yet, just download one and install it on your PC, such
as, Foxit PDF reader, XChange PDF Viewer, Adobe Reader, etc.

(2) Right click the PDF file -> Select "Properties" -> In the popup dialog, select the PDF reader you have installed -> Make "Always use the program to open this type of file" checked.

That's all.
