Adobe Acrobat Reader

Adobe Acrobat Reader is a freeware program that allows you to read files that were saved in a PDF format.

PDF is the acronym for Portable Document Format, which is a file format used for capturing fully formatted documents from almost any application, thus making them easily exchangeable and application independent.

Download Adobe Acrobat Reader

You can download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader from the Adobe website. It is recommended that you do not select any additional programs that may be offered during the download process.

Creating PDF Files

There are several options if you need to create PDF files. The Mac OS X operating has the ability to create PDF files from any application that has a Print command. Simply select Save as PDF in the Print dialog box. The latest version of Microsoft Office also allows you to use the Save As command, and select the PDF format. For advanced features, such as creating PDF forms, or creating PDF files from multiple documents, use Adobe's Acrobat Professional. Both applications are available from The Computer Store.
