How to update Adobe Acrobat Reader

To update Adobe Acrobat Reader, you have three options: you can do it from Malavida, through its own software, and from the Adobe website.

Updating Adobe Acrobat Reader from Malavida

First of all, open the program on your computer and go to Help > About Adobe Acrobat Reader DC:

Adobe Acrobat Reader’s menu barAdobe Acrobat Reader’s menu bar

Next, you will see a window that shows the version number of the program:

Adobe Acrobat Reader’s version numberAdobe Acrobat Reader’s version number

Write it down and keep it in a place where you can easily check it. Now, go to the end of this text, where you will find a button that will take you to the Adobe Acrobat Reader download page. Click on it and you will get to the next window, where you will have to look for the version number:

Version number at MalavidaVersion number at Malavida

Now, check your Adobe Acrobat Reader version number. If it is the same as our servers, you are up-to-date. But if our servers' version is higher than yours, click on the green button you see in the image to access the download page, where you will have to click on the button and repeat the process that we showed you during the installation.

Update Adobe Acrobat Reader from its own software

With Adobe Acrobat Reader open, go to Help > Check for Updates:

Click on it. A window will appear looking for online updates. If the program is updated, the following window will appear:

Update Adobe Acrobat Reader from the Adobe website

To update Adobe Acrobat Reader from its website, you will need to go back to the Help > About Adobe Acrobat Reader DC route and check the version number:

Once you have done so, go to the official Adobe Acrobat Reader download page and check if the version number of the file you are going to download is higher than yours. Click on the download button to get the file, and when you have it on your computer, double click on it to install it. The installer takes care of everything without you having to do anything at all.
