Help opening pdf, windows 8.1 please

im trying to open some pdf attachments that have been emailed to me. it opened the first one fine but when i try and open a different file it still comes up with the first one i opened. I've saved the individual files to my computer, closed down the pdf reader (microsoft office) and tried to open a different one again. every pdf file displays the first file i originally opened. they open fine on my phone. can anyone help?

try adobe reader, double check you are opening a different document

Get Foxit and use it instead of the default reader

I prefer Sumatra PDF Reader. Smaller, faster, safer.

You need to move the mouse cursor around the edges of he screen so the popup preview window appears for the presently open file - in this case the PDF document. Then when the PDF file appears by the cursor carefully move the mouse cursor onto the desired PDF document of your choice to Maximise. Try the top left corner of the screen and moving the cursor to the icons on the lower left of he screen for previews of open files.
