You cannot open PDFs with elements since it is a PDF creator only. It has now viewer, that's why you have to install reader with it.
I wonder if this question relates to Photoshop Elements, rather than
Sorry, didn't know that you can open PDFs with Photoshop. So if PDF is associated to Photoshop, you can change this in Windows Explorer very easy (if you're using windows): Right click a PDF file, chose properties, on the general tab, you see Type of file, Opens with and a big Change button. Click the change button and within the box find and select Adobe Reader 8.1. If you can't see it there, use the browse button to search AcroRd32.exe and click open, click OK, click Apply, done!
If you are on a Mac, select the application you wish to open, hit command > i and this will bring up an info box and about 2/3 way down see a tag called "Open With." There you can change the application you wish to use.
Hope this helps.
