I want to read PDF files on a computer offline

October 21, 2019 at 14:08:15
Specs: Windows xp
I have a computer which I deliberately do not wish to connect to the internet as I do not like windows 10, as well as for security. I have some PDF files (not my favourite format) which I have copied from another computer and would like to be able to open them to read only and print on the offline computer. Is there any way to do this?

You just need a PDF reader to read PDF files (you'd still have to download one from another machine and install it to the "non-internet" machine). Adobe Reader is the most popular, but there are other options as well:

Realize also that some of these may try to connect to the internet after installation (and thus reflect an error when no connection is found)...

And since you state your operating system to be XP (above), make sure you find one that works on XP...

"I have a computer which I deliberately do not wish to connect to the internet as I do not like windows 10, as well as for security."

That's an odd statement. I'm not a huge fan of Win10 but we're pretty much stuck with it unless you're willing to learn & use Linux. Win10 has reasonably good built-in protection (Defender) plus there are numerous free security programs that are just as good if not better. WinXP hasn't been supported for over 5 years. It's difficult to even find security software for it anymore as well as a safe browser. IMHO, you should definitely NOT be using it to connect to the internet.

As for a free PDF reader, that's covered in the link provided by T-R-A.
