Google PDF reader

Each time I open (View) a PDF it opens in Google Docs. I don't like this as half the page is off the screen. I'd rather it open in Acrobat.

Is there a setting somewhere to stop Google Docs from opening documents.

or just hold down shift while right clicking a .pdf file and in the pop out context menu choose Open With... Adobe Reader. Should be a checkbox to make it the default .pdf reader.
