There are three ways to save a PDF file to the location you choose on your hard drive:

  1. Open the PDF file in your browser window; save it with the browser's "File > Save" or "File > Save As" command.
  2. Open the PDF file in the Acrobat Reader; save it using the "Save" icon on the Reader's menu bar.
  3. Without first looking at it in the browser, right click on the link; click "Save This Link As" or "Save Target As" on the pop-up menu.
