clicking on pdf files in system folders

#1 Post by koolsbergen » 14.08.2011, 13:20

Remarkable discovery. I'm using Windows 7 in Dutch on 2 machines, 64 bits Home Premium version on a desktop pc and Windows 7 Starter on a netbook. On both machines I copied some pdf files to C:\users\username\Downloads and C:\users\username\Documents. Then I rightclicked once on a file name. Result: the default pdf reader starts in the background (it does not open the file and you can only check it in Task Manager). Exactly the same happens after leftclicking (once). The choice of pdf reader makes no difference, I made Acroread, Foxit and Nitro the default reader and in happened in all cases on both machines in the maps I mentioned. Apparently it has to do with system folders although it did not happen in C:\users/username\Pictures. No problems either in sub folders of Documents.
NB I did not open the system folders via the libraries but step by step through the "long way" Computer - Users etcetera.
I hope this info is useful.

Hello! I tried it on a pdf on my desktop (a user folder...), and there doesn't seem to be any problem at my place. I use Adobe Acrobat 9, but "acrotray" is always running in the background anyway - seems to be a sort of launcher to speed up Acrobat or something - but it is normal.

How can you print a single page PDF file multiple times on a single page? I have single page PDF file with photo, that I would like to print 4 copies on page to save ink and paper.

@koolsbergen: Seems to be something with Acrobat. When I do it the Context menu is shown.
I'm running PDFXCview to open PDF.

@zabenka: Don't mix up topics. Start a new Topic!

Yes - a new topic that is related to FreeCommanderXE. This is not the right forum to ask about how to use pdf files, sorry!
