Hi Gerald,
I really wouldn't depend on IE for anything anymore. You'll have to switch
Your experience really will be better with Google Chrome or perhaps Firefox.
IE is not supportted anymore.
the learning curve might be a little stiff but, better to move on now.
I can't even get my IE to come up anymore. I moved on to Chrome a couple of
years ago and its pretty good.

It appears that there is noAdobe plug in listed on the IE Add-ons
Manager, which explains why IE is unable to read PDF documents. In
fact, there are no add-ons listed at all.?? Fortunately, Adobe Acrobat
seems to work with Chrome and Firefox, so I guess I will have to use
one of these browsers to read PDF documents.?? Are there any other PDF
readers that work with IE that are JAWS accessible?

You probably will have to select all add-ons to find the adobe

Using JAWS 2019 with Windows 10, I cannot get Adobe Acrobat to work
with IE.?? When I access a PDF document in IE, I get a page with an
open parent document button, but when I click on it, nothing
happens.?? On the Preferences mdialog, the enable protected mode check
box is unchecked.??
What other settings do I need to change to get Acrobat to work with IE???
