Portable Document Format (PDF) Files
Portable Document Format (PDF) files contain the color, graphics and text of hard copy, but are easy to distribute electronically and are widely used on the Internet.
To view or print a PDF file, you need the Adobe® Reader®, which is available at no charge on the Adobe web site. Use the latest version of the Adobe Reader to avoid any cross-browser or compatibility issues.
Once you download and install the Adobe Reader, you may need to configure your browser to define the Adobe Reader as the associated application for .pdf files. The Adobe web site has additional information on configuring your browser and troubleshooting any printing problems.
Viewing PDF Files
To view a PDF file, left click the link; depending upon your browser configuration, the PDF file may appear in the same or a separate window.
If you attempt to view the PDF file and the browser window remains blank (a known bug in certain versions of some browsers), right click in the blank window and select the "Reload" option. Or, return to the previous page, right click the link and select the "Open in New Window" option.
Saving PDF Files
To save a PDF file to your computer, right click the link and select the option to "Save Link As" or "Save Target As."
To save a PDF file to your computer once the PDF file is already open, click the File Save icon on the Adobe Reader toolbar.
