Help with PDF files

PDF stands for Portable Document Format. It's a universal file format that displays the fonts, images, graphics and layout of a document, no matter what the application and platform used to create it. In order to view and print a PDF document, you'll need to download the free PDF viewer from the Adobe website. Most computers come with the free Adobe Reader ® software as standard.
