save your file and then you can control
Do you mean save the file out to the hard disk then open in Acrobat Reader itself? Yes, that does work, but inconvient. I do a lot of research on the Internet with Google and will open many PDF files in separate tab windows along with oher web pages - nice to have it all under one instance of IE. It seems on my other computers in the past I had a tool bar / menu that was present when using IE - something changed of went away. Any more suggestions?
Right click a blank part of the tab bar in IE8 and choose "Menu Bar".
