PDFs are known as a universal format for a reason: they can be viewed on any platform. This is a major benefit to using the format. With millions of users on different computers and operating systems, you do not have to worry about anyone being unable to open your PDF document.
Just as long as you have the right software, you can open a PDF and view them in full screen, as separate files, or in web browsers. Here are a few How-To tips.
PDF viewers, like Adobe Reader, are great for viewing PDFs offline when you do not have the Internet. When browsing online with a browser like Firefox, you can now easily view PDFs in your browser though, you may need to change your browser settings first.
Most PDF viewer programs, Adobe Reader included, offer a few functions to make PDF viewing easy.
For example, you can activate the Page Thumbnails view for a quick glance at the pages or the Bookmarks view for a hierarchical overview of the PDF file.
The Toolbar Items list just below will give you the ability to further customize the UI and place popular PDF viewing commands on the toolbar. Just click through to the drop menu and put a check beside the feature.
