Sumatra PDF is a PDF, ePub, MOBI, CHM, XPS, DjVu, CBZ, CBR reader for Windows

Add to context menu

I’ve tried a couple of different ways to open a PDF file from the context menu with “open with SumatraPDF”, but they all seem to call up the m$ menu that says “How do you want to open this pdf file?” that forces me to choose the app from their menu. Lots of extra keystrokes.

I have differing needs. Sometimes I need Abobe, sometimes Irfanview, and sometimes Sumatra (love the bookmarks!). Both Sumatra and Irfanview call up that windows app screen to choose from.
Any ideas?

If you dont want SumatraPDF as default but want the ability to easily “open with” then I use the send to folder for shortcuts and that gives me several choices in just two clicks 1st > “Send to” then 2nd is my choice.

Find you personal SendTo folder (%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo) and copy shortcuts into it, you will see from above, that I also have a send to SendTo :slight_smile: so I can “send” new shortcuts or overwrite those that I keep changing daily.

Same as drag and drop onto a desktop shortcut I can send multiple files.
