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 Adobe.com 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.

FireFox

  1. When opening the WITC College Catalog in Firefox you may receive a warning at the top of the screen that states the following: "This PDF document might not be displayed correctly."
  2. You will also see a button on the right that states "Open With Different Viewer." Click on that button to change your preferred viewer to Open with Adobe Acrobat (default) and also check the "do this automatically for files like this from now on checkbox."
  3. Click OK.

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.
