How to Launch Acrobat Readerby K.C. Winslow
Adobe renamed Acrobat Reader, the free PDF viewer, as Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is available for both Windows-based PCs and Mac computers. On either platform you can open Adobe Reader by double-clicking on a PDF document, provided Adobe Reader is the default PDF viewer on your system. You can also launch Adobe Reader on its own and open PDFs from within the program.
On a Windows-Based PC
Click on the "Start" menu button.
Highlight "All Programs".
Select "Adobe Reader".
On a Mac
Click the "Go" menu at the top of the Finder screen.
Double-click "Adobe Reader".
