Adobe Acrobat PDF iconShort for Portable Document Format, PDF is a file format developed by Adobe that enables users to capture the native appearance of a document. It is useful because it allows the document to be viewed and printed the same way on any device. PDF files are frequently used in legal documents, such as tax papers, bank statements, and other forms that require the user to fill in data. Clicking the Adobe PDF file icon to the right opens an example of a PDF file if Adobe Acrobat Reader or other PDF reader is installed on your computer.
