Downloading, or just plain reading PDF

By catherinempascoe ·
I am about as computer illiterate as they come. However, I am willing to learn all I can, provided it is offered without cost.
So, here"s my first question..........
How does one read PDF? When I select Open all I see is a blank page. Help.

It's a Adobe File system that you need Adobe Acrobat Reader to read or at the very least installed on your computer as well as the Browser Plug in's so that you can view the document within the browser if you open a PDF File while on line. Depending on the OS that you are using there are different version 6 available for Windows 98 SE or 8 for Windows XP.

The latest version is available here

Older versions for different OS's you'll have to dig around a bit for.
