    Reader 9.3.0 and Photoshop Elements 2.0


      I have a new computer with Windows 7, 64 bit, etc.  I loaded Adobe Reader 9.3.0.  I also have Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0.  Whenever I want to open a PDF file, Photoshop tries to open it, which doesn't work.  What did I do wrong and how do I get Reader to open these PDF files instead of Photoshop?  Thanks.

          Sorry that I'm not up to date on Win 7 but you need to reassociate Reader to open PDF's.


          Save a PDF to your desktop, click once to highlight it then right click and go to Open With>Choose Program. Select REader then check the box that says "A;ways use the selected program to open this type of file".


          Win 7 may be slightly different or use some different terminology but that should get you started.
