Tips for setting up a PDF. Once you click on the Abode icon to download the Adobe Reader you can save the file on your hard drive. A problem faced by most people is that they forget where they have saved their Adobe file on the hard drive thus it is recommended that you store it in a temporary file as well from where it can be easily accessed. When you are given an option of where to save the file do not click on the “return” key before checking where the file is being saved. Write down the name of the file and the folder or the area where you are saving the file to enable you to find the file later and not waste much time searching. 20
