Hi guys

I wonder if anyone can help me. I don't know what I've done, but Safari now opens pdf files using Quicktime, rather than downloading them and opening in Preview.

Does anyone know how to change this back?

Many thanks

Maybe this…

In the Finder
1. Select a pdf
2. Under File select Get Info
3. Select option "Open with"
4. Select Preview as the default application

Also,
In Safari Preferences/General
Select the box "Open safe files after downloading" if that's what you want.
