- Viewing, saving, and printing files
To view a file you need to have a program that reads that file type. If you have the appropriate program, you have two options.
- View or print immediately
Left-click the link. The appropriate program should launch and show the file. You can print the file from within the program. When you're done, you can either save the file or just close the program. If you choose the latter, you'll need to come back to the web page to open that file again.
- Save for viewing and printing later
Right-click the link, and choose "Save as…" from the option menu. In the dialog that appears, choose a place to save the file. Once the download is complete, go to the place you saved it and double-click on the file to open it. You can print from within the appropriate program. When you close the file, you'll be able to open it again later.
- What is a DOC file?
This is the native file format of Microsoft's Word program. It uses the extension "doc", which is short for "document", as in, "MyFile.doc".
If you don't have Word, you can download a free Word document viewer from Microsoft's website.
- What is a PDF file?
PDF stands for "Portable Document Format", and is the file extension used by documents of this type. The format was invented by Adobe Systems®, a widely recognized leader in the print graphics software industry, as a means to provide "pixel-perfect" print quality for a document regardless of the machine on which it is viewed.
- Viewing and printing PDF files
PDFs are generally viewed on the screen either within a browser or from the local machine. In either case the local machine must have software installed which is capable of rendering the file.
There are several PDF reader programs available, but the most popular by far is Reader® by Adobe. This is the successor to their former PDF reader software, Acrobat® Reader. You can download Reader for free from Adobe's website. It's a big download, roughly 34mb.
Note: The Adobe Reader installer currently attempts to install additional, unrelated software (Google Toolbar) along with the Reader program. While this additional software is optional, it is selected by default — you must unselect it manually if you don't want it. When installing any software, read carefully, be mindful of your selections, and make sure you understand what will be installed. We cannot provide service, support, or accountability for anything that happens as a result of installing 3rd-party software.
Providing you have a PDF reader installed, to view and/or print a PDF in the browser, simply click the link to the file. To download it to your machine for viewing and printing later, right-click the link and choose "Save as…", then select a location on your machine.
