Hello,

I would like to open my pdf files with a different program other than my default pdf reader adobe. Currently, I am running a macro to do this but it is taking a little time to open the file. This is the code I am using currently now.

Code: Select all

Send, {LShift down}{F10}{LShift up}h{Down 3}{Enter}
Is there any shortcut to run, after selecting the file and say "alt + O" to open a pdf with a desired program like foxit (C:\Program Files (x86)\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\FoxitReader.exe)
