I bought a game on a cd-rom and the instruction manual is on the disk: in a format called 'pdf'. I tried opening it with MS Word and Notepad, but it does not reconise it!! How do I open the file. Any help most welcome.
Thank you for the help: downloaded the adobe s/ware and it works fine now. what are pdf files? I thought .doc or .txt would of been the standard for written files!! This was the first time I've come across pdf??
Portable Document Format - basically a text file or Word Document can't be guarenteed to look the same on all PCs. PDF files allow a file to look exactly as the designer intended (layout, colurs etc etc)
