Typical usage scenarios
Many users who make extensive use of computers or electronic devices for work and leisure activities will no doubt have accumulated a large number of PDF (portable document format) files. These are also known as "Acrobat" files because of the huge popularity of the free Acrobat Reader released by Adobe.
Management of PDF files can become a problem when a collection of PDF files reaches hundreds or even thousands of documents. Very often the filename is completely uninformative and the files themselves may be scattered across many folders or disks.
In a situation like this, it is very difficult to find a specific document which may have been read a while ago. A-PDF Explorer was designed as a solution to many of the problems just mentioned. The program has been designed to allow for easy management and viewing of PDF files. The search\filter tools allow for easy access to information at a later time.
