Adobe Reader

Hi (my first posting so Oops beforehand)
Adobe Reader opens by default in My documents. I have a second hard drive D on which I have a folder for all pdf files. How can I set up Adobe so that it opens in my pdf foder on drive D.

Alter its path.

Right click the icon there you will see the path, alter it to D:mydocuments/name of folder for example

I changed the "Start In" entry in the shortcut properties, but Adobe Reader always seems to want to start in C:\My Documents\ Perhaps someone can offer a registration hack, but the following is good enough.

Create a shortcut for Windows Explorer on your taskbar with the target properties to your PDF files. Launch that to get a list of your PDF files and open them in Adobe Reader with double-click. Enter something like this (assuming here that your PDFs are stored in D:\Portable Documents\) in the target properties for Windows Explorer.

C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE "D:\Portable Documents\", /e

Assign the Adobe Reader icon to the Windows Explorer shortcut by changing the icon.

Another way is to use a plug-in for your browser, and drag and drop the files into that.

Hi guys, thanks. I am pursuing the advice. I had wondered whether READER contained something like the simple file Location facility in WORD (Tools, Options).

I am not aware of any way to change the default path. It would be useful to be able to do that.
