More About Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

Acrobat Reader DC, designed by Adobe, is a leading office tool for reading, commenting, printing and signing PDF documents. Rivaling Word, it stands out for its increased efficiency and its connection to the Adobe cloud. Free and useful, this software remains an essential choice to download without reservation, for Windows, Android and iOS.

Why use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC?

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is a free application for Windows and Mac, designed by Adobe, the famous developer of Photoshop. This software is also available as an app for Android and iOS in the Play Store and the App Store, as well as as an extension for Google Chrome.

Acrobat Reader DC offers various useful features for reading, annotating and transforming PDF files, which you can also use through its web app.

The worthy heir of Adobe Reader

Adobe Acrobat, launched more than two decades ago, offers a comprehensive suite of tools for managing and editing PDF documents. It has become the undisputed reference, particularly for professionals, and has become popular with the general public thanks to Acrobat Reader, its free version.

Although browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox can open PDF files natively, a dedicated reader like Acrobat offers additional functionality. The latest version, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, features a modernized design and integrates with the Adobe Creative cloud to sync and access documents across a variety of devices, including computers and tablets.

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC offers a set of free and very useful features for everyday use. Mostly limited to a few uses per month, these vary depending on the version used:

Reading and annotating documents

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC on Windows offers an ergonomic, comprehensive interface translated into French. It allows you to open all types of PDF documents, view their content and print them using the toolbar.

It also facilitates collaboration by allowing you to select text, add margin comments and highlight, underline or strike through text for better readability. Handwritten indications can also be added.

Document filling and signing

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC also stands out thanks to its electronic filling and signature tool. Available on Windows and via the web app, this functionality allows you to edit PDF files to add check boxes and signature fields.

It also makes it easier to fill out forms, add signatures and/or initials, insert validation checkmarks and annotate. The documents can then be shared with the relevant parties via a link or email.

Converting files to PDF

The Acrobat Reader web app can also convert Microsoft 365 files (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) and images (JPG, PNG, TIFF, etc.) into PDF format, thus perfectly complementing your office tools. To use this tool, simply choose the file to convert and Acrobat Reader takes care of the rest. The conversion is fast and the converted file is available for download instantly.

Reverse conversion is also possible via the web app, although limited to Word files. The tool allows you to choose the document to convert, select the export format (Doc, Docx or Rtf) and specify the language of the document. As with converting to PDF, the process is quick and the converted file is available immediately.

The last tool offered is that of compressing large PDF files to facilitate their downloading and sharing, particularly via e-mail. To do this, the Adobe compressor automatically manages the optimization of the quality of images, fonts and other content included in the PDF.
