I have a user that uses a pdf to display ads on their computer screen that is on an intel nuc device that is connected directly to a Television set. The PDF is set that when in full screen mode it plays through the various pages showing their offerings.
Power is unstable at the site and a UPS is not available to use due to the nature of where the Television is situated.
The intel nuc is running windows 10. I want to know if anyone has a script or similar system that they are running that allows the windows environment to, when the computer restarts, automatically open the pdf file that contains all the images and open it in fullscreen mode and start displaying images.
Currently we get called everytime there is a power dip and we need to connect to the computer and manually open adobe pdf with the pdf image file and start the full screen ourselves.
Thank you in advanced
Place the file (or a shortcut to it) in the Startup folder of the Start Menu, or under:
Thanks. his gets me to a point where the PDF opens automatically but unfortunately I also need it to automatically open in full screen mode as at the moment when the machine restarts it opens the first page and that's as far as it gets so it does not cycle through the rest of the pages
To do that open the PDF file in Acrobat, go to File - Properties - Initial View and tick the "Open in Full Screen mode" box.
Hi Does this apply to the PRO version of Adobe Acrobat Reader only as on the Properties panel on the PDF FIle there is no Initial View Tab that I can change anything in
Yes, you must have Adobe Acrobat Pro or Standard to do that. You can't do it in the free Reader.
Thanks for the assistance. The client will look at purchasing the adobe software but now that I know what to look for I'm sure that I will come right.
Thank you once again for your assistance
