After installation of Acrobat, I open up Chrome and am greeted with an extra Chrome tab of Adobe "welcome" nonsense. Can this tab be prevented with registry key or another setting?
Apologies for the late reply, I hope you must have got a fix for this by now. As you are getting an extra Chrome tab of Adobe "welcome".
Please try to disable the tab through the registry: Windows registry editor version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\AV General]
I hope this works for you, do let us know the results.
I really appreciate the attempt.
Because we don't have Reader DC but Acrobat DC I tried it under Adobe Acrobat\DC as well as Acrobat Reader. The first had no effect, the second had an undesired effect.
When using the exact key mentioned above, the tab does indeed not open, but that is because the extension doesn't get enabled. It makes the "Enable Extension" button to act like clicking the grey close x. The extension is not removed from Chrome as I can manually enable it from chrome://extensions. If I manually enable the extension, the new tab still shows up.
Apologies for the inconvenience,
This is the welcome screen asking to enable the extension. Once you enable the extension the screen will not appear again.
As you mentioned, "If I manually enable the extension, the new tab still shows up" which new tab you are referring to, could you please send us the screenshot of the same?
We need some more information for a better understanding.
Apologies for the inconvenience caused.
We have tested the same at our end, the new tab opens for the very first time you enable the extension, it's a design behavior. You can simply close the tab and it will not appear the second time.
Let us know if it does appear again in your case. For better understanding please provide us with your workflow that you are following.
we have this problem. we are enabling Acrobat ext in NonPersistent VDI environment. we couldnt capture this in our profile management solution. how can disable this additional Tab from opening. each time our users login to VDI, they see this.
