Sometimes I have pdf files that have pages shown horizontally. I usually use Google Chrome to open pdf files, and I was wondering is there anyway to "turn" the file by 90deg so that I can read the pdf in Google Chrome?

As of Chrome 17 you can right-click on the PDF and choose "Rotate clockwise" or "Rotate anti-clockwise".

Unfortunately, with Chrome, you cant. You can read the article about it here. You will have to open it in another browser, or within Acrobat.

In IE, for example, you can press Ctrl+Shift++ or - to rotate a PDF in the browser.
