I didn't know I had acrobat installed, it came with an update or something. I don't want it at all but it changed all my normal pdf files to acrobat files which has me confused. How do I change the files back to just displaying PDF instead of an Adobe Acrobat Document? Is there a difference? Can it be fixed by removing Adobe?

Hi Henry

 

We are sorry for the trouble. Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is a freeware application used for viewing, printing, signing, sharing, and annotating PDFs For more information please look at the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/in/reader/faq.html

 

You may change the default PDF viewer on your computer as follows

 

For Mac:

  1. Select any PDF file from Finder. Control-click to open the menu.
  2. Choose Get Info from the menu that opens.
  3. From the Open with: section in the new window that opens, select your preferred application, such as Adobe Reader or Preview.
  4. Click the Change All button.

 

For Windows:

1. Right Click on the PDF file.

2. Go to properties.

3. Under, Open With  Click on 'Change'

4. Select the desired application from the list of applications and click OK.
