Open PDF Files In Acrobat After Conversion.
• To delete PDF files without further notice, deselect Ask For Confirmation Before Deleting PDF Files.
• To append PDF files without further notice, deselect Ask For Confirmation Before Adding Pages To PDF Files.
• To skip alerts reminding you that the PDF file you are appending to has been changed, deselect Warn Before
Adding Pages If The PDF File Has Been Modified.
Manage PDFs in Internet Explorer (Windows)
You can open the Adobe PDF Explorer Bar within Internet Explorer to see PDF files and folders on your computer
in a familiar navigation-tree pane and format. All other types of files do not appear, which makes it easier to find the
PDFs on your computer. You can move PDFs and folders, rename them, or delete them, just like in Windows
The Adobe PDF Explorer Bar also contains buttons for converting the current web page to PDF or creating new
folders on your computer.
When you right-click a web page, the context-sensitive menu includes some commands for converting PDFs. Which
commands are available depends on the element you right-click on the web page. For example, the commands that appear
when you right-click a text link differ from those that appear when you right-click ordinary text on the web page.
1 Open the Adobe PDF pane in Internet Explorer, using one of the following methods:
• Choose Adobe PDF Explorer Bar from the Adobe PDF toolbar menu.
• Choose View > Explorer Bar > Adobe PDF.
2 In the Adobe PDF pane, manage folders by doing any of the following:
• To add a new folder, select the location for the folder in the tree structure and click New Folder, or right-click the
location icon and choose New Folder.
• To rename a folder, right-click the folder, choose Rename, and type a new name.
• To delete a folder, right-click the folder and choose Delete.
Only PDF files appear in the navigation structure in the Adobe PDF pane, but other files may be present in folders.
If you attempt to delete a folder that contains files that aren’t visible, a confirmation message appears. If you’re not sure
that you want to delete those files, click No.
