Saving a PDF File to Your Computer

Saving a PDF File to Your Computer

Use the following instructions (either Windows or Macintosh) to save a PDF file to your computer's hard drive. Saving a file not only permits you to keep it for as long as you wish, but it also allows you to open the file much faster than you can in your web browser.
For Microsoft Windows users:

1. If you're currently attempting to download the file, click the stop button on your browser.

2. Right-click the link to the PDF file, and then click Save Target As on the submenu.

3. The File Download dialog box opens, and a progress bar allows you to monitor the download process.

4. After the file is downloaded, the Save As dialog box opens.

5. Specify the location on your computer where you want to save the file, and click the Save button.

6. After the file is saved, click the Close button in the File Download dialog box.

7. To open the file stored on your computer, double-click it (the Adobe Acrobat Reader will begin running automatically).

For Macintosh users:

1. If you're currently attempting to download the file, click the stop button on your browser.

2. Click and hold you mouse on the link to the PDF file, and then click the Download link to Disc in the pop-up window (if you use Netscape Navigator, the name of the pop-up window menu option is Save Link As).

3. Specify the location on your computer where you want to save the file, and click the Save button.

4. A progress bar allows you to monitor the download process.

5. After the file is saved on your computer, you can open it by double-clicking on the file (the Abode Acrobat Reader will begin running automatically).
