Hi Ned,

 

Thank you for reaching out and sorry about the trouble. 

 

Please let us know if you are referring to the option to edit images under the Edit PDF tool.

If yes, please let us know what happens when you select the option. Do you receive any error messages?

Share the Acrobat and OS version installed on the machine.

Can you access the MS Paint application directly? Please check.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi

Yes, the edit tool. When I select MS Paint, it tells me I have to select the .exe file. When I attempt, I get an error saying I do not have access to the folder to do so. This is a personal machine and I am the Administrator and only user. It is using Acrobat DC and Windows 11.

Hi Ned,

 

Sorry for the delay in response.

 

Please let us know if the issue still occurs.

If yes, would you mind sharing a small video of the issue along with the Acrobat version information?
