PDF files - cannot open or open incorrectly. Icon may be wrong on PDF files

If you are not able to open PDF files, then you probably need to re-associate your PDF files with Adobe Reader, or Adobe Pro if you have that version.

Right click on any PDF file (on your desktop or anywhere on a local, not network or internet file)  You are just going to be telling your computer what to do when you double click on a PDF, so any file that is supposed to be PDF that is on your local computer is fine.  It needs to be a local file, not a network or Internet file.

Select OPEN WITH->

Select Choose Default Program (bottom of the list)

Select Adobe Reader or(Adobe Pro if you have that).  

Click OK.


This applies to Windows computers only.  Macbooks will use the Mac Preview option.
