How to set pdf-xchange viewer as your default pdf reader in firefox Google Chrome Internet Explorer

display PDF files in your web browser (Firefox Google Chrome Internet Explorer) using the PDF-XChange Plugin


When i click a PDF link on a web page it does not open in the PDF-Xchange Viewer plugin ( PDF files do not open correctly or when your browser displays a blank white screen after trying to open the PDF file ). because, When you click a PDF link on a web page, it can open either within the web browser or directly in your default PDF viewing application. Each browser has its own settings to control how PDFs open from a web page.  To change the display behavior, follow the instructions below for your browser, or see the browser documentation on how to control plug-ins or add-ons.
