Hi

I have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader on my Windows 10 pc, and I use Outlook 2016

When I open a PDF file and click on the Email icon on the top, I then click on attachments and then it already has selected Outlook as email client and then finally it opens new email showing the pdf attachment.

My question is, is there anyway to make emailing a pdf file faster without each time selecting outlook as email client to use?

I did check in Preferences-Email that Outlook was already selected as default email client

This issue started with updating to this newest version of Adobe reader, I did not have this issue on the previous version of Adobe Acrobat reader. Thanks

Furqan

Hello Furqan!

With the Acrobat and Acrobat Reader DC October 2018 release (19.008.20071), we have introduced a Unified Sharing experience that allows you to easily invite people for collaborating on documents across desktop, mobile, and web.

However, if you wish to change the UI for the email attachment, you may refer to the help article to use registry settings How to use the email icon to directly send file as attachment

Let us know how it goes and share your observation.

Thanks,

Anand Sri.
