Alright, I need some more assistance please..

I have installed Adobe Acrobat Reader on the Mini.. However, Preview has been set as the default viewer for .pdf files.

My question: How do I set the file association for .pdf files in the Mac, so that Adobe defaults to opening pdf's instead of preview?? When I try to open a pdf file, the dialog box does not give me an option to chooose which application I want to use. It only offers Preview (as the default), and I'm not allowed to browse and find my own chosen App to open it with.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Steve

If you right click or command+click on a PDF file and then go under Open With:. Select the program you want and click Change All.

That should do it.
