I'm trying to find the folder where an app was downloaded to to see what other files are there.

If I go to All Apps, Adobe, the app is there.

I cannot find that folder (Adobe) when I go to Windows Explore, C, Program Files. For that matter, a lot of other things are not there either.

How to I get to those folders?

Thanks

64 bit apps are in prog files.
32 bit apps in prog files (x86). Adobe Reader is 32 bit.

Have you tried Program Files (x86)?

Also, open your browser (I use IE) and set the download option to "Downloads". That way you will know where downloads will go.

John, it's not where the downloads go, I know where that is (I use FireFox). Iy's after it's installed.

McKnife was exactly right. It's not Acrobat but another Adobe product.
