WITC College Catalog - Browser Support

The WITC College Catalog is now available in a clickable, bookmarked, easy-to-use PDF format. We recommend you have Adobe Reader installed on your PC, laptop, or electronic device. For complete installation information, visit or begin install by clicking the "Get Adobe Reader" image below.

Some browsers include their own PDF viewers and ignore our catalog's table of contents functionality. The following steps will assist you in enabling that functionality.

Adobe Reader

To make Adobe Reader your reader of choice (default):

  1. Open Adobe Reader from your programs or by using the desktop icon.
  2. Choose "Edit/Preferences" and then select "General" from the left category list.
  3. In the "General category" click the "Select Default PDF Handler" button located at the bottom under the "Application Startup" options.
  4. Clicking the "Select Default PDF Handler" provides a drop-down list with "Adobe Reader XI (11.0.03) or any other PDF reader versions that may be installed on your system. Choose the Adobe Reader option.
  5. Click Apply
  6. Adobe Reader should now be your default PDF viewer.

Internet Explorer

  1. Click the Tools gear in the upper right corner of your browser and choose "Manage add-ons."
  2. In the list of "Add-on Types" on the left, click on "Toolbars and Extensions" and look for Adobe Systems, Incorporated listings and check to see if all Adobe items are in "Enabled" status."
  3. If any appear as "Disabled", you can "Enable" by clicking on the disabled item and then click on the "Enable" button that will then appear.
  4. Click on the Close button when you have enabled all add-ons needed to use the Adobe PDF Reader successfully.


  1. When opening the WITC College Catalog in Firefox you may see the bookmarked list in the left column of the page.
  2. To rectify this issue either apply the Add-on PDF Viewer or pdfViewerSwitcher 0.8.1 by choosing one from the FireFox Menu and clicking on Add-ons and searching for PDF Viewer.
  3. Install the PDF Viewer or pdfViewerSwitcher 0.8.1 and follow instructions. When complete you should see a PDF icon in the upper right corner of your tool bar by the "Open Menu" icon.
  4. Click the PDF icon to switch view to the version that includes the bookmarked table of contents.

Google Chrome

  1. When you open the WITC College Catalog in Google Chrome you will not see the bookmarked list of pages you should see when viewing the catalog.
  2. Look in the browser address bar at the far right and if you have Adobe Reader installed you will see a small PDF icon.
  3. Click on the icon and click on the Open in Adobe Reader link to convert to the proper reading view.
  4. The Bookmarks should be visible now in the left of your browser window.
