Is there an option (in the new acrobat update) to change the windows taskbar view, so that when I put my mouse cursor on the acrobat reader icon on the taskbar, I -- dont-- get a preview of all the opened tabs in acrobat reader?

Thanks for reaching out to your concerns.
I would like to let you know that this concern is not specific to Reader application Rather this is controlled by your Windows machine in generic for all the running applications.
Please search over the browse on how to disable the "Aero peek" theme on windows and that would do the charm for all your applications.
This answer is missing the point. When I do Aero Peek over a Chrome or Firefox window with multiple tabs open, it shows only the currently active tab(s) in the Firefox or Chrome window(s). If only one window with multiple tabs is open, I see only the one tab.
This doesn't resolve the issue. Firefox and Chrome have no problem with this feature (one window with many tabs, one taskbar item).
Adobe needs to add this feature, plain and simple. Many have complained and every time they get annoying work arounds instead of a proper solution.
I just know the trick that will solve your problem! I also think there should be an option; so that when we click the icon in the taskbar it should just open the current tab rather than popping up the thumbnails of all the opened tabs;
The trick is:
Disable Grouping in the taskbar
This kind of solves the problem but introduces another one: the icons now all have text to them and fill up the taskbar. Why can't adobe just be like firefox, it groups by windows and not by tabs. If you have two windows open, each with five tabs, when you click on the firefox icon it brings up the two windows and you pick which one you want. If you have ten tabs on one firefox window when you click on the firefox icon it just opens that window straight away rather than frustratingly forcing you to choose which tab you want to open!
I agree with you!
It was irritating the filling up of the taskbar. But now I have got used to it xD
Because the former is more annoying!
The UX is not really great. I was forced to make to the switch to sumatra pdf and foxit reader, they do exactly what we wanted. It restores sessions, current pages and there is only one icon on the taskbar for multiple open pdfs just like chrome and firefox.
They lacks some of the features that Adobe provides but for my needs I'm quite happy with them. and also they are completely free!
Hello,my solution may be a little late for you. There are two methods:
1.Llick it with middle key of the mouse
2.Download a exe whose name is 7+taskbark, and set it as following picture
My rely is deleted for no reason,I try to rely you again:
There are two methods :
1.Click it with the middle key of the mouse
2.If you just click it with the right key, you may need to download a app called 7+taskbar ,and check the 3th option in the "left click on combined item"
