Texmaker question: can't start the command to view Pdf


I compiled a simple code with Texmaker:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
Hello universe!
\end{document}

I did the setting in OPTIONS-->CONFIGURE TEXMAKER-->QUICK BUILD, and chose PDFLATEX+VIEW PDF。

after I did SAVE - QUICK BUILD,I noticed my folder has a new .pdf file which I can open manually.

but when I attempt to use the VIEW PDF ICON(or F7),CONSOLE returns: "ERROR: COULD NOT START THE COMMAND。"

I have a feeling I must have missed something stupid here, but I couldn't figure out why. Going to my folder and manually open the pdf file each time after I edit my document is a pain. Can someone help me on this? Many thanks!

Welcome to LQ!

Is your texlive install ok?

Start texmaker from console and provide more details.
