    Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 is in the Applications folder. From any other application, when I try to open a pdf file it doesn't open. I tried downloading Acrobat reader, but that didn't open the document either. Should Acrobat be in another folder?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    It depends on what application PDF files are associated with. Right-click on a PDF file and choose Get Info. In the window that comes up look under the Open With section. You'll see a drop box that lets you pick an application. By default it should be set to Preview (which I prefer over Acrobat). Once you make your choice you can click on the Change All button so it applies to all PDF files. Should be good to go after that.
