Adobe PDF Files

By excel_gid ·
Sometimes We find helpful files carrying very vital information on the web in PDF format which are opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Though we can print these files but my problem is that i dont have a printer and I want to save these files. Can anybody tell me the way to save these files on my hard disk.

Very easy just do a "copy save as" up on the file menu.

Very clever you are, but you could not read my question properly. Thanks anyway.

Usually File>Save As is sufficient. You should make sure it's saving as PDF rather than JPG.

Acrobat files might be getting opened within your Web Browser ( Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, etc.) by a browser plug-in / helper, rather than with the standalone Acrobat Reader. If that is the case, the regular menu belonging to the Web Browser won't work. Instead, you should look for a menu bar (or icon bar) immediately above the PDF text displayed, but below the regular Web Browser "header" area. When viewing a PDF in a Web Browser via the plug-in, the Acrobat Plug-in/Helper toolbar appears. Clicking on the "DISK" icon will pop-up a SAVE AS dialog. ( I wish I could paste a picture in this because it would make it so much clearer )

Thanks for taking botheration to reply me, but I could not find any menu or button you mentioned in your reply, perhaps my browser needs a plug in to be installed but will u be so kind to tell me what plug in is to be installed and from where I can get it.

When you open the PDF file, if you're given the option "Open or Save"; save the file to your hard drive and then try opening with Acrobat Reader.

BTW what is your browser? OS? Acrobat version?
You say you don't have a printer, but I assume you have a printer driver installed.

You can get Adobe Acrobat Reader free at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/alternate.html . YOu can choose the Version of your choice. Once intalled, you should be able to view & save acrobate files within your browser. ( On caution -- with Acrobat, it's usually a safer process if you a) diable virus checking; b) uninstall any previous versions BEFORE doing the install ) Also, another choice for saving the files is BEFORE you click on the link that takes you to the PDF file, you can RIGHT CLICK on it. A pop-up menu will appear. If you use Internaet Explorer, choose Save Target As... or is you use Netscape Navigator choose Save Link As... You will then be presented with the Save As dialog and can select the Folder/filename you wish for saving the PDF file.
