After you’ve uploaded files to the cloud, it’s easy to manage your files, search them, and even preview them.
Acrobat.com offers several ways to upload files to the cloud. To add files, do one of the following:
Click the Upload File icon on the Acrobat.com toolbar. Select the file or files that you want to upload in the File Upload dialog box, and then click Open.
If you’re uploading files to a new, or empty, folder, open the folder and then click the File Upload icon in the middle of the application window.
Drag files from your computer onto the Acrobat.com application window.
A progress bar appears as Acrobat.com uploads your files, and scans them for viruses.
You can change the way Acrobat.com displays your files. Click the Filter & Sort icon on the upper-right corner of the Acrobat.com application window, and then click the Thumbnail to display a thumbnail preview or click List to see a list of filenames.
When you select a file or folder, the Acrobat.com toolbar appears in the upper-left corner of the page.
When you select multiple files, the available options on the Acrobat.com toolbar are Delete, Move, and Share.

Sort and search files

You can sort files by File Name, File Type, File Size, Date Added, or Date Modified.
To search the files you’ve uploaded to Acrobat.com, enter a keyword in the Search By Keyword box in the upper-left corner of the application, and then click Search. Acrobat.com returns a list of all your stored documents that match your search criteria.
You can refine the search results by adding one or more filters. Create filters based on File Name, File Type, Modified Date, or Date Added.
To preview a file, hover the cursor over it. A small preview appears in the center of the Acrobat.com window. If the file you’re previewing has multiple pages, click the arrows on the left or right side of the preview to navigate through the document.
To see a larger preview of the file, click the preview, or the file itself, to open it in fullscreen mode. While in fullscreen mode, you can delete, download, or rename the file using the tools in the upper-right corner of the application window. You can also see information about the file, such as the type, modified date, and size. To hide the file information, hover the cursor over the bottom of the preview, and then click the Hide File Info button .
To close a preview and return to the file view, click the back arrow in the upper-left corner of the Acrobat.com window.
