          2. Click Folder Options
          3. Go to File Types
          4. Scroll to PDF in list

          9. Click OK
          10. Click Apply

          2. Right-click on the PDF file that is already saved to your local disk
          3. Choose, Open With...
          If Internet Explorer is listed as the 'Recommended Programs', do the following:
          1. Mark checkbox, 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'
          2. Click Browse
          3. Find Adobe Reader 8.0 (default location - Adobe\reader 8.0\reader\acrord32.exe)
          4. Highlight this .exe
          5. Click Open
          6. Click OK
          Check to see that Adobe Reader is now listed as the 'Recommended Program' for this type of file.
