    Exact same question. Apparently you can only access the pdfs via the app, fine, but how the **** do you delete them?

    deleting the app will also clear the list/files.

    Clearing the list to delete the files seems to be a poor solution as there may be files that need to be saved. This lack of file deletion needs to be addressed by WP8.

    see my other rant in the other pdf post. I understand they are trying to control the file system more, but some basic control is needed, especially for business document handling and sharing.

    How were you able to download a pdf using IE on your phone?
    Whenever I click on a link to view a pdf the MS pdf reader starts up, flashes by the "tap to open" icon, then says "unable to open document"...
    How do I get the file off of the website to my phone?

    Here is a pdf file I wanted to view the other day and for the life of me get it on my phone:

    To delete files in the Acrobat Reader app, press/tap and hold on the file you want to delete. A delete file button should pop up after a second or two.

    Similarly, should you ever desire to refresh your contacts for facebook or other social networks, you need to enter the setup menu, then hold on the network of choice until refresh appears. Hotmail/Outlook updates whenever you sync your mail or send mail.
