I have an unusual problem with Chrome when I try to open PDFs. If I have already downloaded a PDF and try to download it again, I can open it by tapping its name; in the screenshot below, I could tap "pdf.pdf" to open the file.

enter image description here The issue is that tapping this link actually opens RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic! If I choose to download again, Chrome redownloads and opens the PDF correctly, so it's not a huge issue, but still an inconvenience.

In Settings, it says that RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic has no defaults, and I am unable to change the "open supported links" setting.

How do I stop RollerCoaster Tycoon trying to be a PDF reader?

    @beeshyams That was quick! Installing that prompted an "open with" dialog so I could change my default. Oddly RCT isn't even an option there, but I've now chosen Drive and it works fine. Post your suggestion as an answer. – Aaron Christiansen May 28 '17 at 10:03

Suggestion to install better open with app and set the default for opening PDF app worked for OP. Possibly, RCT didn't figure in the options, but setting it to Google Drive fixed the issue
