    Download and install Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader on your PC or Mac.

    Sometimes, you may need to read PDF attachments sent by your company or friends. Generally speaking, you can read PDF attachments on the web as long as you install PDF reader like Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader on your computer.
