Bookmark a page / section in Adobe Reader and find it again

Technically, you can't bookmark in Adobe Reader, that feature being available only in the Adobe PDF creator, a paid piece of software.

However, you CAN use a feature of Adobe Reader (I'm talkin' the latest, download it from here) to mark a page / section in  a PDF and return to it, much as you'd use a bookmark.

To create a bookmark (I'm using the term loosely), click the comment icon, top of the Adobe Reader window. It looks like this:

The pale yellow icon is the one you need to click. Clicking it will open the comment dialog box. Type a random comment. I generally type "bada bing" because it really doesn't matter. Click the "-" icon top right of the comment widow. Your comment will be saved.

Close the PDF. You will be asked if you want to save the file. Agree. You'll be asked if you want to replace the old file. Agree.

Your sneaky bookmark will be saved.

To go back to where you stopped reading:

Load the PDF file in Acrobat Reader.

Go to View --> Comments --> annotations

Click Annotations.

On the right side of your screen you'll see the list of comments you've added. If you're smart like me, there'll be only one. Anyway, click the most relevant comment.

You'll be taken to the comment you've made.

There ya go, that's how you bookmark a page in Adobe Reader and get back to it for free :)
