Get rid of Adobe PDF Viewer plugin in Safari

Recently I’ve had to install the Adobe Acrobat Reader on my MacBook Pro. As usual, I was in a hurry and had no time to complete the installation. Since then Safari will always use Acrobat PDF Viewer plugin to display PDF. Because I prefer using Mac OS Preview to view PDF files, it is time to get rid of the Acrobat plug-in.

Nothing easier than that…

… just open Terminal and go to the Library folder to remove the corresponding Acrobat Internet Plug-Ins.

cd "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/"
sudo rm -rf AdobePDFViewer*
