Steps to reproduce

Well, what is the problem?

I use Soda PDF 8 as my PDF Editor. No matter how many times I set it as default, Edge overrides my setting and establishes itself as default. There are several MS Community Forum threads which attest to this being a widespread problem, persistent and downright annoying. Check out https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings/how-to-override-microsoft-edge-as-the-default-pdf/0dcd9fbf-707f-4e5a-9ea8-6f695744c284?page=4&msgId=bc3fc311-3f5d-47a7-a25a-ff6c3e5a128e and one recent poster says his company is moving away from all MS products in protest.

I am sure many people feel extremely angry that their personal preferences are being violated.

Check out the community forum!
Continually keep your eyes on it because it will let you know what people are saying about your products!
Don’t rely on this forum because no-one knows it exists!
Above all, fix Edge so that I can, as is my right, use a far superior PDF Editor!
