How do I change the document viewer as the default pdf reader?
Thank you very* much for your help. What you say for the most part does work for me, but I am using evolution for my email and when I click on a file that has a pdf the only options I'm given when I click on the drop down arrow is save as or open in document viewer. I need a way to change document viewer from showing up in the drop down box and instead show acroreader. Thank you.

* Install the pdf reader of your choice.
* Right click on a pdf file on your hdd and then click on 'Properites'
at the bottom of the menu.
* On the 'Opens with' tab, select the reader of your choice as the
default to open pdf files with.
* Close the dialog box and there you are. :-)
