View PDF files in different browsers

  1. Oct 4, 2007 #1
    Hi all,

    Any one can help me how to configure the Acrobat Reader so that we can view PDF files in different browsers? For example, we have two datasheets saved in pdf format, and we want to open to compare their specs. Thanks for any help!

    You can't open two reader screens?

    Are you sure? I did that for excel. Thanks

    I meant that, if we open two pdf files, the last one will be displayed. Then, if we click on the first opening, it will replace the last one. Finally, we still see only one at the time. Thanks

    If you are viewing them in a web-browser, try to start another instance of the browser... or else request a new window (under the File menu) and open the second one there.
