Windows 8 Reader Switch Between Documents

Posted on


Before Windows 8, opening multiple PDFs would result in a window for each one, and you could then alt+tab between open documents.

In Windows 8, they all open to the Reader app, but only one instance is ever open. Is there a way to quickly switch between open documents using Reader?


When you have 2 or more files open in Reader you can press and HOLD right click on a file you are not currently viewing and it will let you open it in a new window.

VoilĂ , you now have two instances of Reader each with different files. Just do the Windows 8 split screen thingy and the can be side by side for your viewing pleasure.

What you want to do is:


Have a nice day.
