Im not sure what you are asking so please see the two answers below and determine which fits your question best.

1. Click on the start menu>control panel>folder options>file types

now from the folder options window scroll down to PDF

once you find PDF click on it so its highlighted and then click on the Change button below.

Once you click change you will get a new window that says open with, now you would select Microsoft office word from the list and then check the box that says " Always use the selected program to open this kind of file"

Now click ok and you should notice that PDF will now open with Word.


2.You can also convert an adobe reader document to Microsoft word using any free pdf converter. http://www.freepdfconvert.com/pdf-word

Follow the steps closely and download and save the file once it completes the conversion.

I am assuming you want the .pdf extension to automatically open with word instead.

To change which program starts when you double-click a file, follow these steps:

  1. Open Windows Explorer by right-clicking the Start button, and then click Explore.
  2. Click a folder that contains a file of the type that you want Windows to open in a program that you select.
  3. Right-click the file and, depending on the programs installed on your computer, complete one of the following steps:
    • Click Open With to choose the program that you want.
    • Point to Open With, and then click Choose Program to choose the program that you want.
  4. The Open With dialog box is displayed. Use one of the following methods to select the program that you want to use for this file type:
    • In the Programs list, click the program that you want to use.
    • Click Browse, locate and then click the program that you want to use, and then click Open.
    • Click Look for the appropriate program on the Web to browse the Internet for the program that you want to use.
  5. Click to select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box if it is not selected.
  6. Click OK.

    Note From now on, Windows XP will open all files that have this file name extension in the program that you selected. To change this, you must follow these steps again and associate a different program with this file name extension.

If the document is not copy protected, you can copy it, and save as MS word document.
Copy the document, open a new MS word window, paste in it, and when you try to close the window, a dialogue will appear. Press save button, and point out the place, where it should be saved. That's all.

Pdf file is not openinig in my sony vaio


Hi,
If you don't have Adobe Reader, then download it from the Adobe website ( www.adobe.com ).
If you have Adobe Reader, and the file does not open because Windows does not know with what program you can open the file, do this:
a) Right click on the file you need to open.
b) Click on Properties and then click Change...
When you've changed the opening program for the file, it should work.
If it still does not work, then try reinstalling Adobe Reader.
If the problem will still be there, try scanning your computer for viruses with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Cannot open attachments from emails.


Hi There.
If you can not open attached documents it might be because programs are missing on your computer.
As an example:
for a file xxx.PDF you need a PDF reader installed eg. Adobe Reader.
Can be found here: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/
Download Adobe Reader and install it and you can read PDF files.
If the document is a Microsoft Office document you nee the whole Microsoft Office Package - but this package is not free - must by it.

As an alternative to the Microsoft program you can use Open Office.
Can be found here: www.openoffice.org
This program is compatible to Microsoft Office and it is free to use.

Other type of files need other programs etc.

How do I change Microsoft Reader as default?


http://www.microsoft.com/reader/info/tips/nolonger.aspx

Here's how to fix the problem:
  1. Shut down Microsoft Reader:
    a. From the Start Menu, tap "Settings"
    b. Select the System tab.
    c. Select the Memory icon.
    d. Tap the Running Program tab.
    e. Highlight Microsoft Reader on the Running Program list.
    f. Tap the Stop button.
  2. Tap OK.
  3. Start File Explorer
  4. Navigate to My Documents/Annotations
  5. Select and delete the .EBO file for the problem title. The correct .EBO file is the file that begins with the eBook title. If more than one .EBO file exists for the problem title, select and delete each one.
  6. Start Microsoft Reader again.
  7. Open the eBook. Let the device remain turned on, allowing Microsoft Reader to repaginate until it completes. This process should not take more than a few minutes. Microsoft Reader needs to perform this operation just once for each eBook.
How do I know if Reader is still handling background pagination on the title?
  1. Open the eBook in question.
  2. Begin reading the content.
  3. On the bottom of the Reader page, tap and hold the page number for a couple of seconds — then release it. The Riffle Control should be displayed: its appearance may take a second or two.
  4. The Riffle Control shows you where you are in the eBook. The leftmost number is the first page of the eBook; the rightmost number is the last page of the eBook. If the rightmost number is displayed in red, Microsoft Reader is not done with background pagination. If the rightmost number is displayed in black, Reader has completed pagination.

Cant open pdf


Make sure only adobe 9 is the only version of adobe reader you have installed on that computer. Then go to where your PDF file is and right click on it with the mouse and go into properties.

In the general tab where it says type of file it will show you what program is opening up the PDF file. Click on the change button and where it says recommended programs see if Adobe reader is there, if its not then down below where it says other programs click on the down arrow and see if adobe reader shows up there. If it shows up in either section then choose it, then click on apply, and then click on okay.

Now if for some reason adobe reader doesn't show up in either section, then you'll need to browse for it. It normally installs itself in the program files folder, then double-click on it and go into the adobe folder, Adobe 9.0 and then the reader folder. The name of the reader program looks something like acrord32 and it will say application to the right of it. At that point choose it and apply the changes so it opens up with Adobe reader.

This should cover everything, if your still having problems, let me know and I'll help you out further.

I AM TRYING TO FILL IN AN APPLICATION FORM IN A PDF FILE AND I DON'T GET ANY OPTIONS TO HIGHLIGHT TEXTS. IS IT BECAUSE THE COMPUTER I'M USING DOESN'T HAVE MICROSOFT WORD INSTALLED?


What program did you use to open the PDF? If you opened it with the default program, you probably used Adobe Reader which does not allow you to edit PDFs. You can import PDFs into several Office suites with add-ons. For example, Open Office 3 has a PDF add-on that lets the PDF be opened and modified in Draw and Impress. There are also online PDF editors and some low cost alternatives to Adobe Acrobat is the full program that makes PDFs. PDFill PDF Editor gets some good reviews
http://download.cnet.com/PDFill-PDF-Editor/3000-6675_4-10295757.html
as does www.pdfescape.com/ (an on-line option). Please note that most will put their logo on your document as a footer or somewhere unless you use a paid version.

I hope this helps.

(word does the PDF import more easily as I recall (possibly with an add-on) but there are alternatives.)
