How-to Download and install Acrobat PDF Reader

A very short tutorial to show you "how-to" download the Adobe Reader Program.

There are a few different ways to do this depending on whether you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer (I.E.) or Netscape Navigator (NN) as your browser. (Referred to here as either IE or NN)

No matter which browser you use you will need to decide where you want to put the item you're saving, in this case, the Adobe Reader Program.

It is pretty easy to download a file, just click on it and away you go, but you will need to know a little about how to find a file that you have downloaded to your computer. Here is a link to a tutorial on learning about the file structure of your computer.

To download the free Adobe Reader, click the Get Adobe reader logo

Microsoft Internet Explorer Instructions:

When you click on the 'Get Acrobat Reader' button, you will be taken to a page where you will be given a choice as to which version of the reader you need for your system.

Click on the appropriate reader. For example if you are using a PC (IBM clone) running either Windows 95, 98 or NT you would download this (most commonly downloaded choice - Acrobat Reader 5.0 with Search for Windows 95, 98, Me, NT 4.0, and 2000 9.9 MB) If you are using a Mac or Imac, look further down the list, you will find the appropriate file to download and install for your machine.

You will then get this pop up screen

At this point you will have to decide whether you wish to save this program to disk or run it from here.
Saving to disk means you must tell it where to go (check out the file structure tutorial) and then once it has been saved to a folder on your hard drive, you will have to go find it and install it, by double clicking on the file in the location that it is saved.

Should you choose to run the program from its current location, (probably the easiest if you are an inexperienced computer user) you will just follow the instructions on your screen. It is very simple, nothing to it!
