Help Please


I have both adobe acrobat and excel on my comp. All of a sudden, when I click on a pdf, it opens in excel. The file is still *.pdf but has an excel icon. The only way for me to open a pdf is to first open adobe, and then File-->open

I can no longer just click on a pdf thats on my desktop or in explorer, because excel will open it.

I know this is just a matter of changing default programs for certain file extensions, but I dont know how to do this. Im using Win ME

Double Click on My Computer --> Tools --> Folder Options.

Click on the File Types tab. Scroll down until you see PDF on the Extensions and then around the middle of the window, you can change what program you want that extension to open with.

bendsly's idea will work. But you might find it easier to rightclick on the *.pdf file and choose "open with..." Then select Adobe and be sure to check off the "Always use this program to open files of this type"
