Opening XFA compliant PDF documents does not work with built-in PDF player of Microsoft Edge

New Contributor



The built-in PDF player of Edge does not support opening of XFA compliant PDF documents. Is there any chance this functionality will be added in the near future to the browser?

If not, how the users are supposed to open this type of PDF documents using Edge, other than downloading the file to the local drive and use Acrobat Reader Dc after that.


Thank you,


Eduard Constantin

This is by design. XFA is not part of the PDF standard, and so our initial implementation does not support it. We're looking into what it would take for minimal support in the future though.

@josh_bodner Your roadmap (Microsoft 365 Roadmap | Microsoft 365) still lists XFA support as being in GA as of last month. Is there any update to that status, then?
