Another pdf related problem – files not opening with Acrobat Reader – need to change association on Windows 7

For a windows 7 user – that I recently installed Acrobat Reader 10.1 – reporting to me that email attachments that were PDF files were not opening in Acrobat Reader rather in Media Center – but showing as empty here is a solution.

The steps top change the pdf  association under windows 7 were


Open control panel

Select default Programs ( if don’t see this change from view by category to view by small icons at the right hand side of control panel)

Select Associate a file type ….

Scroll down to pdf

Double click and when the  “open with” dialog  is displayed select adobe reader

Click on close bottom right

check in explorer or other application t that clicking on pdf does open Acrobat reader
