Adobe Acrobat Won't Close

Portable document formats are useful for sharing information in a single format independent of variables between users' computers. Documents aren't subject to word-processor settings, but are easy to open and view in their correct appearance using the Adobe Acrobat program. Sometimes, the program malfunctions and doesn't close when you try to exit. The fix for this problem is simple, whether you're using a PC or Mac.
