PDF files are mostly made to be viewed and not edited. Your use of the word "open" may imply that you want to edit it. Editing a PDF would only be possibly if they allowed such. Most PDF authors just want you to view the content with Acrobat Reader.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
