I assume that you mean Adobe Acrobat reader. First of all make sure that you already have installed this program. Go at start - programs - and browse all programs to locate that Adobe Acrobat Reader existing. A good idea is to open it in order to check that it's fully working. In case of a problem download it from this official link. Since you are sure for the Acrobat Reader's existence, right click at any pdf file (these type of files open with Acrobat Reader) - choose open with - go at the bottom of the new window "choose program" - at the new window select Adobe Acrobat Reader (in case it is not available click on browse and navigate at the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader x.x\Reader, select the file AcroRd32, hit open - check the box for "open this kind of files always with the same program" - hit OK and you are ready. From now on every time you will double click at a pdf file the Acrobat Reader will open this file.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Can't download pdf file in yahoo mail even after installing adobe


Hello.

Seems that for some reson pdf files are assigned to your microsoft paint instead of acrobat reader.

Try this....

Find an already existing pdf file somewhere on your computer and right click on it and chose properties,
A box will come up where you now click the button that reads "Change".

A list of programs will appear where you now chose acrobat reader.

That should do it.

Cannot use reader 8.0,cannot remove it or install 9.0


oddly enough, you may find that updating the version 8.0 you have to 8.x will then allow you to remove it (or it will work correctly) can you open the reader manually in the programs list? if so open it, then go to help and check for updates. apply the updates. If they work you should be in good shape.

Hey mrbickham,

In some instances, updating existing software or installing new programs onto your computer can cause issues such as what you have encountered. Fortunately, re-associating .PDF files with Adobe Acrobat Reader instead of MS Word 2007 may be all that you need to do. Most versions of Windows allow users to select the program they want to use to open any given file type, and can usually be done by following the steps I’ve provided below.

1) Right-click on the .PDF file icon.

2) Choose "Open With" from the menu that appears.

3) When you highlight the “Open With” option a submenu should appear. Click on the link in this menu that says “Choose Program.”

4) Another window should then open, providing a list of the available programs on your computer. Choose Adobe Acrobat Reader from the menu and check the box next to it.

5) At the bottom of the page there should also be an option that says something similar to "Always use this program to open this file type." Make sure that this option is enabled.

6) Click "OK."

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Do you get a dialog box saying that the file can't be opened? and down the bottom is a button with which you can select a program to open the file with?

If yes, click on this - Acrobat may not be listed (hence the problem). There should be a Browse button, click on this an work youur way to C:\Programs\Adobe\Acrobat (or some such naming) enter the Acrobat folder and find the Acrobat EXE file - click on this and say yes to all the prompts on your way out. This will now associate Acrobat with PDF files.

Hope this works.
