    Default Computer question

    Hi,
    I use adobe acrobat (full version) v5, I have asked my computer to open all .pdf files with acrobat but the icon for these files has changed to something horrible ... i'd like to change the icon for .pdf files to the adobe one ... anyone know how to do this? I run Win 2000 on the computer concerned

    Thanks

    right click the file you want to open with Acrobat
    Choose properties.
    Then CHANGE the associated program or Open With.



    windows should be clever enough to recognise all the others after that (I hope)

    Hi AJA

    Thanks for the advice, I did that but the flaming icon for the file did not change to the usual adobe one.

    I can double click on the icon and acrobat opens, I just like the normal adobe icon rather than the default one I now have

    Cheers

    No probs mate. It sounds like the default icon associated with Acrobat has changed if it opens OK.
