A simple way to check to see if a PDF reader is installed on your computer is to search for "Adobe Reader" in your list of programs. If you do not see Adobe Reader, or you want to double-check to make sure that it is installed, follow these steps:
- Click on the following link to download a .zip file that contains a PDF: PDF Reader Test [ZIP]
- You should receive a notification in your browser or a pop-up window to download this file. Select the option to download and save the file to your computer.
- Locate the downloaded ZIP file on your computer and open it. It will contain a file called "PDF Reader Test.pdf."
- Open the PDF file.
- If the file opens and you can correctly read the text, then a PDF reader is installed on your computer.
If you do not have a PDF reader installed on your computer, you can download Adobe Reader for free here: http://summituniversity.org/adobereader
