Hi, Shirley. First, you need to make sure that Adobe Acrobat DC is your default pdf reader. You can do this by typing default apps into your search box using the Windows key.


After that, all you do is click on the attachment, and TAB to open. Because Acrobat DC is your default adobe reader, the attachment will open in Acrobat Reader by default when you click Open.

Subject: How do I open an email attachment in Acrobat Reader DC?


Hi Listers,


I guess my subject line says it all. I received an email with a pdf attachment. I saved it. I cannot read it. How do I open it with Acrobat reader? And how do I know it’s in Acrobat Reader?


I know I’ve done it in the past but just can’t remember.


I’m using JAWS 2020 with Windows 10. I’m also using Windows mail in which I have imported Gmail. I think I have the latest Acrobat reader—but not sure.


This COVID-19 seclusion must be messing with my brain.
