  • How to Set Foxit as Default PDF App (Android)

    Been using Foxit mobile since it was first released. Trying to use Foxit on a new Android 7.0 phone and when I tap on pdf files using something such as a file explorer, Kindle and Drive PDF Viewer are the only options.

    How is this accomplished? I can open Foxit and open pdf files that way, but I need the ability to have pdf files always open with Foxit.

    Thanks in advance,
    Beverly Howard

    Your system just discarded my response which I had been working on for over an hour to get you as much information as possible with the message "unapproved"

    In addition, I generated a number of screenshots but the attachment button is disabled.
