This page provides basic information about how to save a PDF document from our website to your computer using the Acrobat 5 READER, the Acrobat APPROVAL 5 program, or the “full ACROBAT 5 software application.
NOTE: For more detailed instructions on how to save PDF files electronically (such as PDF forms with your information typed in), please refer to the Built-In Help included with your Acrobat product, as that topic is beyond the scope of this page.
We strongly recommend saving forms, especially, to your computer — this will help prevent you from losing your information due to a network connection problem, power failure, accidentally clicking your browser’s BACK button, or similar unexpected occurrence while you are filling out one of our forms online.
The Acrobat READER will allow you to save a blank form; if you need to electronically save and store completed forms, you will need to use either the Acrobat APPROVAL 5 program or the “full ACROBAT 5 software application.

Saving one of our online PDF forms, newsletters, or publications to your own computer will also allow you to use that document in the future without having to first connect to the internet — just remember to periodically check with our site, to make sure you’re still using the most recent version of a particular document.
NOTE: Depending on your particular hardware, software, and operating system configuration and settings, what you see when you perform the steps outlined below may look somewhat different from what we present on this page.
1. Locate and click on the Floppy Disk icon (circled in red below) from the Acrobat toolbar within your browser window:
2. When the Save a Copy... dialog box appears, navigate to the location on your computer or network to which you would like to save the PDF file (circled in red, below top).
Notice that the file name (in this example hr.pdf) appears automatically in the File name: box further down the dialog box (circled in red, below left) — if the file name did not appear automatically or you wish to change the file name for your own use, type in your preferred file name.
When you have chosen the save location and verified that the file name is correct, click Save (circled in red, below right):
As the PDF file is saved to your chosen location, you will see a blue progress bar at the bottom of the browser window (circled in red below) showing the save process as it occurs:
3. If you minimize your browser window, you can now see on your Desktop (or other chosen location) the PDF file you saved, in this example labelled hr.pdf and located just below the Recycle Bin (circled in red below):
Once you have successfully saved a PDF file from our website to your computer, you’re ready to view it, print it, or (if it’s a form) fill it out!
