    Converting documents to PDF

      I have Adobe Reader 8.1 using Window XP. This is a new computer sent to me from my headquarters. On the old computer, I used to be able to open a document(Word or anything) and either see the icon to "convert to adobe" or right click and it would be one of my options. I have looked around and I have read and I have not been able to find where I can set that up on this computer. Hopefully this will seem simple for some but for me it is very important I have that ability. Thank you for any and all help given.

          On the old computer there was an installation of Adobe Acrobat, not Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader can't create PDF documents.

              There is no easy way to convert PDF files to other formats preserving their layouts. And I would expect more people to have the free Reader than the not so unexpensive Word. Why don't you invite your recipients to download Reader?
