I just got a new laptop with Windows 10 on it. I have Acrobat X Standard which I purchased in 2012.
I'd like to know if this version of Acrobat will run on the Windows 10 computer. I've read some reviews here and there and they said that this version is not compatible with Windows 10 but I'd like to be sure before I try to load it to my laptop.
Has anyone loaded Acrobat X standard to a Windows 10 computer? Does it work?
I only use Acrobat X to print to pdf and then edit the document by inserting a text box or highlighting information.
Acrobat X is not compatible with Windows 10, features may or may not work.

Acrobat 8 is also "not compatible" with Windows 10, I got it working. So, you might be interested in how I got my Acrobat 8 Pro working in Windows 10. Adobe Acrobat Pro 8.0 working in Windows 10

Because you are interested in printing to .pdf, there is a work around but it only prints, it does not allow you to edit. Adobe PDF printer not working in Windows 10
At first I was unable to launch Acrobat X Pro (Installed with CS6) in Windows 10. Here is how I got it to work:
Set compatibility mode to Windows 7 in the properties of the actual Acrobat.exe file.
Is the page available in English?
Worked for me, thanks so much!
Hi, where can I find Patch file -- Acrofix.zip ? Thank you.
ITS FULLY COMPATIBLE \ CORRECT SOLUTION:
1. Install official Microsoft Compatibility Administrator found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/get-started/adk-install#adkwin10
2. start "Compatibility Administrator (64-bit).exe" in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows Kits\Windows ADK\Application Compatibility Toolkit\Developer and Tester Tools\
3. expand "System Database" > expand "Applications" > find and click "adobe creative suit 6" > on the right window "right" click pdapp.exe "Disable Entry"
4. Run Acrobat X Pro, now insted of crashing it will show a "new" adobe activation agreement (this is what was crashing the acrobat x pro), you can now accept it and Acrobat X Pro runs with 0 issues now (no need for any compatibly modes).
