How to read Adobe Acrobat "PDF" files.

Some of the downloads on this site are in "PDF" format. That's a very common system for publishing information, and you'll almost certainly find it useful in the future - you can often download instructions for your camera or television as PDF, for example. However, you do need to have the (free) "Reader" program on your machine. Not sure if you have it already? Try this small test file - if you can read the contents, you can skip the rest of this page! Otherwise, read on...

What you have to do is to download the best version for your machine. These downloads can take quite a long time, so dial-up users may want to wait until "off-peak" charges apply.

That's all there is to it. Download the best version for your machine and install it. Then, when you click on a link which leads to a PDF document, it will open in the Reader, after a short delay while the program loads.
