How Do I Open a PDF File With Adobe Acrobat Pro in Windows 10?

This article describes how a person opens a PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Pro in Windows 10.


Due to an issue with Microsoft’s built-in PDF reader, CSDS has set the default application which will open PDF files as Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is installed on all CSDS supported workstations and laptops.

Some users prefer to open PDF files with Adobe Acrobat Pro (if available on the workstation or laptop).  Below are two options to open PDF files with Adobe Acrobat Pro:

Option A

Right-click on the PDF file and select 'Edit with Adobe Acrobat'.


Option B

Open 'Adobe Acrobat Pro' and either select 'Edit PDF' from the options in the center of the window, or 'Open' in the upper left hand corner of the application.
