The same as with pretty much any other links in any context: add _target="blank" to the end of the URL As in (broken apart to keep from forming link here):

 

http:// www adobe com _target="blank"

 

Note there's a space there — the underscore is not attached to the prior letter.

For more sophisticated results, look up the _target keyword and other arguments it can use.

Thanks for the reply

I do not know what I'm doing wrong.

There are several layers of things going on here. A PDF opened in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader doesn't need to specify a new browser page; each click on a link there will open a new instance of a browser — a separate app. That's why there's no inherent "new page" feature, as you often see in purely web-creation tools. I am not surprised the technique above, which is universal within true web documents, doesn't work in this case.

 

Viewing PDFs in browsers is a somewhat fraught, unreliable process. The PDF viewers built into browsers tend to be less than completely compliant (with respect to Acrobat, that is); the whole process is a convenience and faulty rendering of PDFs is routine.

 

Since a PDF isn't really meant to be there anyway, the mechanisms for signaling the browser to open a new page from within one are not well implemented. There may be a workaround here, but it's not coming to me.
