If you’re not able to install it, you can fix the problem by leaving the Acrobat window open (you can do that by closing a separate file in a tab, not the program itself).

    If you’re getting the “ Hmmm...can’t reach this page” error message when trying to open a PDF in your TaxDome Drive, you’re most likely using an outdated Edge browser (the default PDF reader on Windows 10). The simplest solution is to install a new one (go to The 6 Best PDF Readers for Windows in 2019 to find out more), then make that your computer’s default PDF reader. However, if you're not able to install it, you can fix the problem by changing your system settings.

    1. Open Internet Explorer by typing internet in your Start menu or by clicking its icon on the task bar.


    2. When the Internet Explorer window opens, click the gear icon at the top right, then select Internet options.

    3. Go to the Security tab, select Local Intranet, then click the Sites button.

    4. In the pop-up window, click Advanced, enter the address of the mapped drive (you can copy it from the Edge error page), then click Add.

    5. Click Close, then click OK to save the changes.

    Now, the PDF files in your Taxdome Drive will open in Edge.
