    PDF will only open in scrambled "word" format

    Flexlabel

      Before downloading Adobe Reader I tried to open a file in "word". Now that I have Adobe, all of my PDF files are opening in "word". I cannot open my PDF's and cannot figure out how to get them to open in the correct format. Any suggestions?

          Assuming you are on Windows, try highlighting a PDF. Right-click, choose open with>Choose program. Choose Reader then select "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".

           

          Those are the instructions for WinXP. If you are using a different Windows OS the instructions or verbiage may change slightly bu that should get you headed in the right direction.
