Say "Good-bye" to the Adobe Reader X "Welcome Screen"Adobe Reader X starts by popping up a "Welcome Screen" making it easier for you to pick a recent document.
One problem - if you have applications that open or print your PDF file, the "Welcome" screen can block that action.
There's no option or preference choice in Adobe Reader X to turn this off, but there is a very easy fix:
- Create a new text file on your desktop. To do this, right click on the desktop and select New » Text Document.
- Rename the file to: NoWelcome.reg
(Make sure that you can see file extensions and change the name from New Text
Document.txt to NoWelcome.reg - this should prompt Windows to ask if you are sure that you want to change the file type.)
- Copy the text contained inside the box below and paste it into your new file. Save and close the file.
Editor Version 5.00
- Double-click on that file, agree with all of the prompts and warnings, and the "Welcome" screen will be gone.
