    Ever since installing Adobe Acrobat, Safari wants to open PDF links it that. I'd rather have it just use Preview. How do tell Safari to do that?

    Delete the acrobat plugin in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins

    If your pdf files on you computer are shown with the Adobe icon, then your system default is to use Adobe.

    To change it Click on a pfd file and Get Info (CMD + I). You'll see Open With and you change the app to to Preview, and click the "Change All" button beneath it. Your default for pdf's is now Preview rather than Adobe.

    I think all you'd need to do is delete the plugin in the Internet Plug-Ins directory in your Library.

    Edit: Beaten to it! ;)
