File Extension PDF

Information about PDF files and how to open them

The Adobe Acrobat application allows users to create documents, texts and presentations that are saved under the PDF file extension. PDF stands for "Portable Document Format File," as this file can also be created by other applications that use the Acrobat plugin. You can attach PDF files to email attachments to share with other people, or place it on a web page for viewing on different Internet browsers.

When you open a PDF file, you will be able to view text, images and data. Many websites allow people to register for products and services by using a downloadable PDF file. The person can use the PDF by filling in the text fields with information and either sending the form as an attachment to an email or allowing a person to print out the form and send it through regular mail. To be able to create and edit PDF files, you will need either the Adobe Acrobat program or an application that features the Adobe Acrobat plugin. If you don't have either, you will not be able to view the file.

For the optimal viewing of PDF files, you should have the latest Adobe Acrobat program installed on your computer. This minimizes errors that can happen when you try to open up a PDF file using an older version of the software.
