    Transfer manual from 'Reader' to 'Documents' How?


    The title says it all. How can I transfer my Acer's User Manual now located in 'Reader' to 'Documents' in 'File Explorer'. There is nothing to use in 'Reader' to do this.

    Is this the users manual for your laptop ?

    Yes it is my new laptop's user manual. I went to File Explorer>Desktop>PDF Reader, but it's not listed there.

    Check your downloads folder, is it in there? What browser did you use to save the file? Look for it in that destination folder where your browser saved it.

    Solved


    I found the solution medab. The swipe-up at the bottom of 'Reader' is a bit temperamental. When I tried it again it opened up & there was a ''Save as' which I selected & filed it in the PDF Reader folder in File Explorer. From there I can either send it to Documents, or right click & send it to Mail Recipient, & email it to my old laptop for any future breakdowns of this new one. Thanks for answering.

    Bassfisher6522, Yes I actually checked every single thing in File Explorer & I couldn't find it. I don't remember even finding it to file in the first place. Maybe Acer automatically installed it in Reader. But I don't understand how they did that without it being in File Explorer in the first place.!!!

    You know why I couldn't find it in File Explorer guys. It was on the Start Menu. I can't believe I am so stupid!! It was actually in File Explorer listed as 'Guide_all.pdf. Next time I'll look a bit harder. This Windows 8 takes a bit getting used to, but I should have noticed that it was on the Start menu.
