Windows cannot find PDF files paths

When I click on a PDF file to open I get an alert box informing me that Windows cannot find the file (followed by actual file path) please ensure you have typed address correctly. This is every PDF. Yes, I have Adobe reader but even when I try to open them with this I get the same message.

Open settings - apps - default apps - scroll down to 'choose default applications by file type'. Scroll down to pdf and change. I use a browser.

Thank you so much. That does the trick. How weird!
