PDFs get opened in the pre-installed PDF reader despite me choosing my browser as the default program for doing so

Is there a way to stop this? Can I safely uninstall the program? I believe it's 'Evince'. It doesn't have 'Remove' button in Software, hence my wondering if I can purge it. If so, will --purge evince work or does it have a different name for the terminal? Cheers.

I always remove Evince. I don't like it.

sudo apt remove --purge evince
