to Download and Install Adobe Acrobat Reader
- Visit Adobe's website
by clicking on this link.
You may also click on the "Get Acrobat Reader" button at the
bottom of this page.
- At Adobe's download
page, fill out steps 1 and 2, making sure to enter your operating system,
country, which language version of Adobe Acrobat you want to download,
and your name and e-mail address.
- Click the "Download"
button. A "file download" window will appear. Choose the "save
to disk" option, select the location you would like to save the program
to, then click the "Save" button. The program will automatically
begin downloading to your computer. Depending on your operating system
and the speed of your Internet connection, it will take between 20-30
minutes to download the file.
- After the program
has downloaded, close your web browser. Locate the folder you downloaded
Adobe Acrobat to, then open the folder and double-click the file. This
will begin the Acrobat Reader setup process, which will guide you through
the rest of the installation.
Adobe Acrobat Reader should install itself as a plug-in
(if you're using Netscape Navigator) or an ActiveX control (if your web
browser is Internet Explorer). The program will also install itself as
a stand-alone application so that you can view PDF documents without having
to open your web browser. Once you've installed Acrobat Reader on your
system, the program will automatically start whenever you attempt to download
a PDF file from a website. The program will also start up anytime you
double-click a PDF file located on your hard drive.
If you have any questions about installing or using Adobe
Acrobat Reader, you can access a number of help files from Adobe's
website. You can also conduct a search for help on the Internet using
a search engine such as Hotbot, Infoseek or Yahoo.
