  • out of the box there is no pdf component. you will have to look for a 3th party.. and then also for the curly effect

    óut of the box you can only launch the pdf file and let it open in an external reader

  • Hi Venkat.,

    In Windows 8 Microsoft provides its own Metro-style application called Windows Reader for viewing Adobe's popular document format. Windows Reader presents a very simple full-screen experience, like other Metro-styled apps. However, if you need more functionalists or need to collorately work with other native applications on the same desktop, you would definitely need a native PDF reader. PDF Viewer for Windows 8 is such a reader that offers decent capabilities and performance as well as versatile functionalists as a native application and is extremely useful for those that typically stick to the Windows 8 desktop experience.

  • Rendering PDFs in Windows Store apps has become really easy with Windows 8.1.

    Windows 8.1 now has PDF rendering APIs and ability to save as images. Check out samples @
