I have only had my Mac since Christmas and love it . I am new so bear with me . I am trying to determine if i have Adobe acrobat reader Installed . Does it come on my mac . If i click on a Pdf document on a web site it opens no problem . If i print i have the Pdf option . But this is my problem . My daughter was here and into a web site . She Tried to download a form to send in medical expenses . I seems to be in the download file folder. When we tried to click on it it was alot of scramble . Do I have a reader or do i need to download one . Not sure of anything

    Adobe Reader does not come with Mac's anymore. It used to but that was many years ago. Mac's come with Preview.app, located in your Applications folder. There is also a pdf view in Safari's web browser that allows you to view the pdf as a web page. If you still feel the need to use Adobe Readed, I believe it is a free donwload from Adobe.

    Thanks Glynn If I understand you when I get a Pdf file by e-mail or want to open one in say a travel web site its preview that is allowing me to do this . If I go to a web site like the one my daughter was on and need to download a form i may need adobe acrobat reader if the site was designed that way . If i download reader will it interfer with preview working

    If you don't want Acrobat Reader to open web based pdf's then>Acrobat Reader>Preferences>Internet. Uncheck the box 'Display PDF in browser using:'
