Easily view, print, and collaborate on PDF files with free Adobe Reader 9 software
AdobeÂ® ReaderÂ® is the tool for opening and using Adobe PDFs that are created in Adobe AcrobatÂ®. Although you can't create PDFs in Reader, you can use Reader to view, print, and manage PDFs. After opening a PDF in Reader, you have a variety of tools to help you find information quickly. If you receive a PDF form, you can complete it online and submit it electronically. If you receive an invitation to review a PDF, use the commenting and markup tools to annotate it. Use the Reader multimedia tools to play video and music in a PDF. And if a PDF contains sensitive information, you can sign or certify a document with a digital ID.
Adobe Reader software is the global standard for electronic document sharing. It is the only PDF file viewer that can open and interact with all PDF documents. Use Adobe Reader to view, search, digitally sign, verify, print, and collaborate on Adobe PDF files.
Deploy, maintain, and support Adobe Reader across your organization. Corporations, government agencies, and educational institutions can distribute Adobe Reader internally on an intranet site or a local network.

Enhance interaction with PDF Portfolios:
Â· PDF Portfolios provide easier navigation when you work with multiple PDF documents and other document types. Portfolios also enable you to work with a collection of materials such as drawings, e-mail messages, spreadsheets, and videos as a single file, which makes distribution, storage, retrieval, and collaboration easy for end users.
