How to Set Adobe Reader as Your Default PDF Viewer

Wonderland Party Invitation Printable by The Digi DameXL
Our party printables can only be opened and edited in Adobe Reader, and not in the standard default PDF viewers that comes with Windows 8 and 10 (Microsoft Edge and Reader) or in the standard PDF viewer for MAC (Preview).

Opening our PDF files in any PDF viewer other than Adobe Reader can corrupt the files.

This means that Adobe Reader must be installed on your computer in order to use our printables. Until you install Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer, templates will open in the default PDF viewers and they won’t work correctly. The text will not be editable. Fonts will not work correctly.

So, using party printables from our Digi Dame Party Shoppe is much easier when you set Adobe Reader as your default PDF viewer.

It means that they will automatically open in the correct software and won't be corrupted. This will be especially helpful to you if you currently use, or will be using, multiple editable PDF files.

Below we have detailed the instructions to set Adobe Reader as the default PDF viewer on your computer, after you have installed it (if you require help with downloading and installing Adobe Reader, click here). Follow the instructions according to what Windows or MAC version you have installed.

On Windows 8

1. Find any PDF file on your computer. Right-click on the file.
2. From the drop down menu, select Open with, and choose default program.
3. Select Adobe Acrobat Reader.
4. All your PDF files will now open in Adobe Acrobat Reader by default.


On Windows 10

1. Find any PDF file on your computer. Right-click on the file.

2. From the drop down menu, select Properties.

3. Click on the Change… button next to Opens With.

4. Select Adobe Acrobat Reader from the pop up window and click on OK.

5. All your PDF files will now open in Adobe Acrobat Reader by default.

On MAC

1. Find any PDF file on your computer. Right-click (or Control-click) the file and select Get Info.
2. If Preview is the current PDF viewer default it will be listed under the heading Open with. If no application listed, click the triangle to the left of Open with to reveal the current setting.
3. Click on the application list to open a drop-down menu. Choose Adobe Reader.
4. Click the Change All button under Info. This will make all PDF files opened by Adobe Reader.
5. All your PDF files will now open in Adobe Acrobat Reader by default.

Note: Double clicking on a PDF file will still open it it in Preview even after installing Adobe Acrobat Reader. Therefore, if you do not make Adobe Reader your default viewer, it is best to launch Adobe Acrobat Reader first, and opening templates directly from it, to prevent your party printables from being corrupted.

That's it! I hope that you have found these instructions helpful!
