Adobe Acrobat Reader 2018

Usually, for reading a PDF, you will only need a simple reader and using Microsoft Edge on your Windows 10 PC should do the trick. For business users, portable document format files provide a method for sharing commercial-grade documents which can be marked up before being sent to a printer.

If you share the PDF via the cloud, anyone will be able to download it, view it and add a comment and save it back.

Adobe just released Acrobat Reader DC 2018

You will find the software free of charge. This newest version adds extensive cloud support. If you own an Adobe account, you will be able to store PDFs in the document Cloud, but you will also be able to link to Box, OneDrive, Dropbox, and SharePoint location. After you save the doc into the cloud, you can view it across multiple devices and share it with others as well.

In the free version, you also get PDF 2.0 support, and you can view documents created in the latest version. You will also be able to produce compliant documents via the PDF/A compatibility with veraPDF.

You need to upgrade the features included in the free version

Unfortunately, most features that are included in the free version of Acrobat Reader DC 2018 require an upgrade to the Professional version or a subscription.

There are also a lot of things that you can do. Besides being able to open any PDF locally or via the cloud, you can add comments to an existing PDF and then save it to the cloud or any other location.

You can also sign it with your own details. Another benefit of using Adobe Acrobat Reader is that you will be using the same UI across Windows and Mac. If you are an Adobe CC user, this will work within your existing Adobe framework.

Overall, upgrading to Adobe Professional 2018 is only worth it if you work heavily with PDF files. The Professional version offers all the editing features, conversion tools, signature options and tracking tools necessary to work with more users.
