Hello Barry and welcome to Seven Forums.

You probably need to install a separate PDF reader. Two free readers that are recommended are Foxit and Nitro. (They are both much smaller and faster than Adobe Reader which for years was the standard.)

Best PDF Reader

Nitro PDF Reader

Caution: suggest using the custom install feature and not the default standard or express. The default installs will usually add unwanted tool bars and miscellaneous "stuff" you really don't need. The custom install allows you to UNselect those unwanted additions.
