Adobe Reader 8 Open by Default

Postby Branta on Thu Jan 22, 2009 8:31 pm

I want to get Adobe Reader 8 to open when I click on a *.pdf file.

What do I do so it opens by default?

Try right clicking the pdf file and go to properties, then choose the Open With tab, and select your default program there. You may have to click Add, and choose it from your list of apps.

That was it. . . .

Rick Click-->Properties-->Open With tab and set it to Adobe Reader 8
