Hello,

I use Adobe Acrobat DC on my desktop PC, which is running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (32-bit).

Recently I noticed that the 'Save file' floppy disk icon, which used to be located to the left of the printer icon on the toolbar, has disappeared. There is a blank space where it used to be, and when I hover on it, I do get the label that reads, 'Save file (Ctrl + S)'.

Acrobat DC is also installed on my other computer, a Windows 8.1 laptop, and when I run the program there, the icon does show.

Please find two screenshots attached.

I am coming here for help after I tried to uninstall and then reinstall Acrobat, but to no avail.

Hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance!

Start by opening a Windows Explorer file window, and at the top type %USERPROFILE% including both % signs.

Same problem, Win 7 Pro SP1 i7 16GB RAM.

I can't see the SAVE icon but it's there also working... If you go mouse over it appears the Save label and it works. Also if I go to the customization tool the save icon is missing in the menu where to choose. I Attach two prinscreen to clarify.

I experienced the same symptoms, and resolved it by deleting (and allowing to regenerate) the Acrobat Reader DC icon cache file in my user profile.

I navigated to the directory: "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Adobe\Acrobat\2015" and deleted the file "IconCacheRdr.dat". I re-launched Reader and the icon was there.

Thank you colinc41755164!  Deleting this file fixed the missing Save button for me as well!  ( %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Adobe\Acrobat\2015 and delete "IconCacheRdr.dat")

Thank you!

My folder was different, it was %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Adobe\Acrobat\DC, but after deleting IconCacheAcro65536.dat and restarting the Reader DC the icon is back!
Well done!

I tried the same thing for the full version of Acrobat DC but I deleted and allowed to regenerate,  "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Adobe\Acrobat\2015" and deleted the file "IconCacheAcro.dat" and my Save icon, which has been gone for months, returned this morning.
