    Icons are changed


      Somehow I managed to change every icon on my desktop to an Adobe Reader PDF shortcut. Every time I click on an icon Adobe Reader 11.0 opens with an error mewssage that says the file cannot be opened. Can anyone please tell me how to get my icons back to functioning properly? Thank you.

          Hi barbaram82788837,


          Could you please clarify why you have changed every icon to an Adobe Reader shortcut.

          Adobe Reader is used to view PDF files only.

          Please right-click on any PDF icon and select 'Open with> Choose default program'. Ensure that it should be Adobe Reader.

          Also, have you tried launching Reader and then opening a PDF from "File> Open.."

          Hope to hear from you.
