hi Jobin! unfortunately, the file that i would like to open is PDF, not Excel so your code does not work for me ><

Please use the below code.

Test.xaml (7.2 KB)

Note: Please set Adobe Acrobat Reader as your default PDF reader.

Thank you.

may i know what image screenshot you placed for “Open Application ‘acrord32.exe Adobe’”? i am unable to view the image in my desktop ><

Just open Adobe Acrobat Reader and indicate the screen.

Here is the sample selector for it


Thank you.
