    How to open local disk files in IE 10


    I want to open a pdf file in IE 10 ON THE DESKTOP. Seems there once was a way to browse to a local file in the IE address bar. (Or maybe that was firefox?)

    Anyway, if there's a way to do that in IE 10 I would sure like to know about it.

    I believe you'll have to have something like Acrobat Reader installed for this to work in IE10 desktop.
