How to View PDF Files
The helper application Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view PDF files. If Acrobat is properly installed on your computer, you can click on the link to a PDF document and it will load in the Adobe Acrobat window. If this does not happen, you need to install the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software. This software will allow you to view PDF files on any website and it takes just 3 steps to get the Reader:  
1) download it, 2) install it, and 3) set it up. 

Download Adobe Acrobat Reader
You'll need about 5-10 megabytes of hard disk space depending on your operating system.

Get the free download.  Note the file name that is downloading and what directory it is downloading into.

Install Acrobat on your computer   
After downloading the Acrobat file, go to your file manager, locate the EXE file that was downloaded, and run it (double click it). This will install the reader on your system.

Set up Acrobat to work with your browser. 
Browser menus vary slightly with different versions. To set up Acrobat in Netscape 3.0, for instance:

  • Go to the Options menu
  • Choose General Preferences
  • Choose Helpers
  • Scroll through the Helpers list until you see Extension type PDF, and select it
  • Under Action, select Launch the Application
  • Browse to find the path where Acrobat's installed EXE file is located and press Open
  • Choose OK to close the window

Now you can view and print the PDF version of the flyer
