When I used to click on a PDF file, it used to automatically open Adobe Reader and then I could print it, make it larger, smaller etc. But every link I click now opens inside the browser, happens with both FF and IE. This means I can only view it online and not save it. Any idea how I change this so it opens Abobe Reader? I have Abobe 10 by the way

hi,

the PDF that is opened in the webbrowser is the PDF itself and can be saved or printed right away.
just move the mouse cursor down to the bottom and you should see an menu with those kind of options.

there should be a shortcut for that but i don't know what it is.

CTRL+P should keep working to print the file in any case.
