HII have both Adobe Reader 9 and Adobe Acrobat X installed in my computer but every time I double click on a pdf document, Adobe Reader opens. I'd like Adobe Acrobat X to open instead as the default program. Any ideas on how to do that? I have Windows XP Professional installed in my computer.Thanks for any insight.

You can set this in Acrobat X under Edit > Preferences > General and make your selection from the Select Default PDF Handler button.
Yes. This works, Ayodeji Atunwa's answer does not.

Hi,If you are on a PC browse to any pdf file, right click on it and choose 'Open with' > Choose default programme...On a Mac Select any PDF document then hit Command I. Towards the middle of the info panel go to 'Open with' You can select the default application for the file and also choose to use the application to open similar documents.I hope this helps.
I do this time after time and my Windows 8.1 continues to use Adobe READER as the default when I keep setting it to Acrobat!!!
