How do I add Adobe Acrobat X Pro to my right-click menu?

I'm working on a Windows 10 PC. When I try to open a PDF by right-clicking, I have a couple of Acrobat options, including Reader. However, I have Creative Suite 5 and I'd prefer to use X Pro to open all PDFs.

When I try to Choose Another App, I am led to my Program Files on my C Drive. I've got two Program Files with Adobe products in them, and I know X Pro must be in one of them...but it's not clearly visible to me.

I do have a folder called Acrobat 10.0. Could it be there?

If so, what in that folder do I choose so that X Pro is added to my right-click menu for opening PDFs?

If not, where is it? How do I find it?

I know this must be very elementary, but I'd be grateful for some step-by-step help on this one. Thank you!

 

EDIT:  I did find it but I still do not know how to get it into the right-click menu. Can anyone help?  Thanks.

Having multiple versions of Acrobat at the same name is not recommended.

However, you can find the executable for Acrobat X under:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe"
