Adobe PDF Help


Portable Document Format (PDF) files allow computer users to view electronic documents as they would appear on paper. PDF files are viewed using a program called Adobe Acrobat Reader. This program may already be installed on your computer. To check, you should:

Click on the PDF file icon that you would like to view.

View the PDF file when Adobe Acrobat Reader automatically displays it for you.

If Adobe Acrobat Reader does not start automatically or does not seem to be functioning correctly, Acrobat Reader may not be installed on your computer, it may be improperly installed, or you may have an older version. You can download and install the most recent version of Acrobat by following these instructions:

Download Adobe Acrobat Reader for free by clicking on the button to the left. It only takes a few minutes. If prompted "What do you want to do with this file?", respond by clicking "Save file to disk."

Remember where in your computer you've saved the file to.

Install Adobe Acrobat Reader. To do this, double-click on the Adobe Acrobat Reader file that you've saved on your computer (in the same location you downloaded it to). Acrobat will run a self-install program.
