Right-click on a PDF file. In the context menu that appears, select
"Open With", then "Choose Program". A dialog box will appear.

Select Acrobat Pro from the list displayed in the dialog box (or click
the "Browse" button to search for Acrobat Pro if it's not on the list).
Make sure that the "Always use the selected program to open this type of
file" checkbox is checked. Click OK.

The above instructions are for Windows XP; if you're using another
version of Windows, the details may be a little different.
