PDF reader & viewer installation
PDF stands for
Portable Document Format.
A PDF is usually a document such as a report, resume, white paper, or memo. It can contain graphics, links, and even fields for entering data.
The most appealing feature of PDFs is that they are not tied to an operating system. You can open a PDF on Windows, Macintosh, etc., and it looks and functions the same.
You may view a PDF two ways:
Download the PDF to your hard disk and view it using a PDF reader
How to view a PDF offline:
Right-click (Windows) or click-and-hold (Macintosh) the link to the PDF, then select "Save to disk" or its equivalent.
Once the PDF has downloaded to your hard disk, open it with a PDF reader. [
Download Adobe's PDF reader.]
View the PDF in your browser with the help of a PDF browser plug-in
How to view a PDF online:
Download Adobe's PDF reader.
Run the installer on your computer. This installer puts the latest version of the PDF reader for your hard disk on your computer, but it also includes a plug-in which allows you to view PDFs through a browser window.
To ensure that you configure your browser properly, visit Adobe's support page.
Once the plug-in is installed properly, click the appropriate link to view the PDF.
Click your browser's back button.
