Reset pdf file extensions to adobe reader 8

I installed Sumatra PDF viewer and made it the default PDF viewer.  

If I want to switch back the default extensions to Adobe Acrobat Reader 8, how can I do this from Adobe as opposed messing around with the file associations myself?

Find a PDF,
Push Shift on the keyboard, and right mouse click on the PDF,
Select "Open With..."
If you have an option to Choose Program, select that option
Find and select "Adobe Acrobat 8.0"

Then make sure the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" option is checked!

then click ok

That should revert the extension association to Adobe Acrobat 8.0.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the points!

I'm glad I was able to be of some assistance.
If you have a few minutes, could you tell me how I could have helped you better? (What could I have done to earn an "A" grade, rather than a "B" grade?) This information will help me provide better assistance to people in the future.

The question was how to reset the file associations from within acrobat reader.  I took your answer to be that you couldn't do it from within acrobat reader (which I find odd, every other program bothers you to choose it as the default).  But the question was sort of answered indirectly.

Thanks for the response, I'll remember to read the question closer from now on. I didn't catch the requirement of how to reset the associations from within Acrobat. I assumed it was association in general.

I just checked, and didn't see any settings from withing Acrobat Reader 8 for resetting the file associations.
