1. Download the Latest version of Adobe Reader (now called Adobe Acrobat Reader DC) and install it on your computer. It’s free and you can get it here from Adobe’s website.
2. Although you may have now installed the latest version of Adobe Reader, your Mac will still use “Preview” when you click on a PDF file UNLESS you change the default PDF reader from “Preview” to “Adobe Reader”. To make that change, follow the simple steps below:
(a) Move the Adobe Reader icon in your “Applications” folder to the “Dock” which is where all your program icons are located at the bottom of your desktop.
(b) Open Adobe Reader from the Dock.
(c) Using the File / Open menu in Adobe Reader, locate and open any PDF file that you have on your computer.
(d) You should then get the following message: “Adobe Reader is not currently configured to be the default application for pdf files. Would you like to make pdf files open with Adobe Reader instead of Preview?”
(e) Click “Yes”
