Frequent Questions / Common Issues
I downloaded a copy of the PDF document but now I can't find it on my computer - what do I do?
When you originally downloaded the files you should have saved the PDF document files to your “desktop”.
If you did not, and if you cannot find them, the easiest thing to do is a search for them.
Click the Windows “Start” button then click “Search” then click “For Files or Folders”.
Where it says “Search for files or folders named:” type in guide – how to set up the perfect blog post
Make sure it says “Look in: ‘Local Hard Drives” on the pull-down menu right below.
Click “Search Now”
Double click the file in the search results and the file should open in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
If it does not open automatically, make a note of where the file is located then follow the instructions in #2 above.
The links in the PDF document won't work
If you click the “web” links in the PDF document (blue underlined links) and they don’t take you to a web page — Make sure your computer is *online and connected to the web*.
If you get an error that says something to the effect that no web browser is configured to work with Adobe Acrobat Reader then try this:
In Adobe Acrobat Reader go to “File” then “Preferences” then “Web Link” and choose your browser in the WWW Browser Application.
You will need to find the .exe file for the browser by clicking the “browse” button.
Your browser .exe file (usually either Firefox or Internet Explorer) can sometimes be found in your “Program Files” folder.
Any more tech support on this issue should come from Adobe or your computer vendor, (or AOL if you use them) since we cannot be sure where to tell you to look on your hard drive for your browser’s .exe file.
This should solve the problem of being able to click directly on the links and have them take you to the web.
