All my PDF files suddenly become Chrome HTML Document! Why?

Hi,
Overnight all my PDF files suddenly become Chrome HTML Document! Why?

Are there some new things happening with Adobe policy on their free Read DC software yesterday?

Thank you.

Did you install a Chrome update and it took ownership of PDF format files? The browsers all tend to have built in PDF viewers now. I expect that you can tell your OS that you prefer to use Adobel as the PDF viewer.

Craig Ruff,

Chrome gets its update automatically and I don't have its control. I found the reason that Chrome browser refreshed the read app attribute for all PDF files using Chrome Browser.
