PDF's in Preview

Hi Gang: All my PDFs now open in Adobe Reader. Can anyone tell me how to change so all PDFs open in Preview? The help menu says to select a PDF in Finder>choose File>Get Info>click Open With>Choose Preview>click Change All. But I cannot find Get Info under the File menu. Thank you, glemac

I think you meant to say to do a 'Get Info' on any pdf file and make the changes and then click the 'Change All'.
Make sure the 'disclosure' triangle it pointing down to see the options.

PDFs in Preview

Okay, thanks so much everyone for your help. I can now open all PDFs in Preview default again which I like much better than the Adobe Reader app. And to Sinc, I checked your fine website and found it very very interesting. Will be watching it. --glemac
