That goes for me too. I wasn't even aware of that submenu. Last time I
made that change, it was under Internet Options.

Thanks. I'm glad you knew. In case Julie is still reading this thread, you
get to the edit menu by pressing alt-e when Adobe is in focus.

You are on the right track. In Adobe Reader, go to the Edit menu and scroll
all the way down to the Accessibility submenu and select Set-up Assistant.
On page 5 of 5, the last page, of the Set-up Assistant is a check box
labeled "DisplayPDF documents in the web browser" which should be unchecked
so that the web page is processed directly by Adobe Reader outside of the
browser and not by the browser's PDF reader add-on, which does not always
work, especially in Windows 7 and later. .

I was afraid you'd ask! I think it used to be simple, but I couldn't find
the relevant setting in Adobe. If it's anywhere, it's in preferences, which
you can reach quickly by pressing control-k.

So just now I went to Google. The following link takes you to an Adobe
webpage that provides instructions. Basically, they say you need to go to
your browser and make the change there. Sorry I can't give you a simple
answer, but I hope this page is helpful and that opening PDF files in Adobe
solves the problem:

How do I do that? Thanks.

Are you opening these PDF files in IE or Adobe? If in IE, you might switch
to open in Adobe only.

I periodically have problems reading PDFs. I receive message that says it
needs to search IE for a fix. . and then it comes back saying that a
resolution could not be found. I know at one time I had to update the file
associations so that it used Adobe to access PDFs. That still seems to be in
place. Does anyone have this same problem or know of a resolution?

I know when the title bar states the document is empty I have to open it
using the Freedom Import Printer in OPenBook . So, this is a different
problem.

Thanks for any help.
