Unlike its predecessor, Windows 10 opens PDF files in Microsoft Edge web browser by default. But if you’re looking for a better PDF reader specially designed for touch user interface, you can now download an app developed by none other than Adobe.
Adobe Reader for Windows 10
Adobe has just announced the availability of its popular PDF reading tool Adobe Reader for Windows 10 and is now available in the Windows Store. The Adobe Reader app has specially been designed for Windows 10 touch user interface.
Adobe Reader features
With Adobe Reader for Windows 10, one can quickly open PDF documents, open and read password protected PDF files, share PDFs with other apps using Share charm, and more. The current version of the app includes search text option to find specific information in the document, zoom in, and bookmarks option to jump directly to a specific chapter in your PDF document.
To change viewing modes, first you need to swipe from the bottom of the screen to view the app bar and then tap View Modes button to select Single Page or Continuous view mode. In order to find a specific word or information in the document, open the app bar by right-clicking anywhere on the document or by swiping from the bottom of the screen, click or tap Find button, enter the keyword, and finally click or tap search button.
To jump to a specific chapter using bookmarks feature, you need to first open the app bar and then click or tap bookmarks button located on the upper right of the screen, and then click or tap the chapter you would like to jump to.
To move from one page to another, simply swipe left or right. And if you’re in continuous view, you need to swipe up or down on the screen to change pages. While reading a PDF document, pinch to view all of your thumbnails and tap a thumbnail to jump to a particular page quickly.
However, the current version of Adobe Reader app is missing many features and options present in the desktop version. If you’re running Windows10 on a desktop or notebook, we recommend you download and install desktop version of Adobe Reader or Fixit or Soda PDF 3D Reader for more advanced features.
