And I have tried every password imaginable. Can't open certain PDFs. How can I get around this?
Since I am unable to open the PDF I can't go into Protect and turn off encryption. So now I have
PDFs I can't open. Anyone know of a workaround?
Did you make these files?
Copy link to clipboard
Even if you knew the password you can't remove the protection using Reader. You'd need Acrobat to do it.
I am using full version of Acrobat
Ok, you just need to learn the password, from the document's creator. I am not sure why you are guessing, you won't guess in a million years.
Still having the same problem
What will I do
The same thing. Contact the person or business making the PDF, and ask them for the password. You won't guess.
