I ran the following registry hack to change my default .pdf reader from Microsoft Edge to Acrobat Reader DC:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.pdf\UserChoice] "Hash"="ISdaXzJSA5s=" "ProgId"="AcroExch.Document.DC"
What I expected was for the registry hack to run and change the default pdf reader to Acrobat Reader, but I found that my account does not have the right permissions to change the registry with a script.
I am currently running an admin account on the computer. While I can manually change the permissions and run the script once, they automatically change back to what is shown moments later. What local settings automatically change permissions for registry keys like this?
