I want to select what PDF files are opened by Adobe Reader. Where can I go to change the default behavior?

You can only set one program association per file extension. What program do you want to use to open pdf files? Because that's what Adobe Reader is for...to open pdf files. :)

Solved.
I used Nuances "PDF Viewer Plus" set to the default viewer. I can do more with it than I can with Adobe Viewer. However, I occasionally get a PDF that can only be opened with Adobe. In that case, I found that opening the Adobe Viewer first and then using it to open the PDF file allowed me to view it and do limited editing with out disturbing the default viewer for the other PDF's.
