I knew that acrobat DC offer the function in which new documents is opened as new tabs.
But I couldn't find that option in the setting menu(I had already saw the method for setting the function: Preferences > General > Open documents as new tabs in the same window (requires restart)).
There was no option below 'Show online storage when saving files'. ('Show online storage when saving files' was just the last option.)
How can I solve this problem?
-I can't reinstall acrobat DC because of 'error 28000'.(I'm using Windows 10)
Do you have Acrobat DC or Reader DC? If the former, what exact version number and what track (Continuous/Classic) are you on?
It seems that you are using Adobe Acrobat DC classic version.
Could you please confirm the dot version of Adobe application you are using.
To check dot version, launch the application and go to Help menu > About Adobe Acrobat DC.
The option to "open PDF as a new tab in the same window" is not available on the classic track.
If you have the classic track, then you will not be able to open PDFs in a tab view.
Let us know if you need any help or if you have any questions.
Thanks for your kind reply.
I'm using acrobat pro DC on continuous track version 2015.007.20033.
Doesn't it offer a tab view??
I'm having this same issue but I have the Classic version. Can you confirm that there is really no way to use tabs in the classic version? Is there no workaround to keep from having to open a new window for each document?
Tabs were not in the 2015 version. You can purchase an upgrade to the 2017 version, or switch to subscription.

Kindly update the Acrobat via Help->Check for updates and keep us posted with your observation.
Thanks for your help very much.
I updated my acrobat pro DC to latest version, then now I'm able to use a tab view function.
Im sure i have the 2017 version, however when i split pages in a document before they would open in a new tab, now i have to save them in a folder each time which is so time consuming.
Split pages doesn't open the documents.
I ran update, restarted my Adobe Acrobat Standard DC:
Below there are suggestions (unsure if official Adobe responses), that you have to buy up? That doesn't make sense when the "reader" version offers this feature (nultiple docs to tabs, within one/same window), when I hold a paid subscription to an editor version?
There's something confusing in your message romocop. You are running the "Classic" version of Acrobat Pro, which was released in 2015 as a normal product - pay for it once - features don't change - pay for an upgrade every few years. But you also say you have a subscription. Do you actually pay for an Acrobat DC subscription (please check your account details to tell us what the subscription name is)?

Your Acrobat version is too old. New versions of Acrobat Reader and Adobe Acrobat have this option.
Can you help please ? I am not a computer wizard....just a 50-something person trying to get by - and I LOVE my tabs....that I now cannot find. Same as initial user, the option is not offerred in preferences. My version is below, can you advise please how do I get "open new document in new tab ? "
Adobe Acrobat X. copyright 1984-2010
This is a nice simple one, Pilar. The tab thing was added long ago, around 2015, but your software is older than that - from about 2010. If you want to get up to date, and I'd recommend it, go to http://get.adobe.com/reader . Be warned, you will have to relearn Acrobat Reader, much is different, not just tabs.
Thank you for the prompt reply ! I especially appreciated the kind words "this is a nice simple one".....I tried the download, but see I need admin. approval (this is for work). So I will proceed down that path. Thank you again ! Pilar
You're right. All software installs and upgrades need admin approval - specifically so work can control everything on everyone's computer. Good luck!
hi same here I don't find the open documents as tabs in same window, I have checked updates and it's showing no updates available
What does it say when you look under Help - About Adobe Acrobat Reader?
Or, indeed Help > About Adobe Acrobat. We need the version number you have, something like 2016.123.98765.
Or, if you are on a Mac, it's in the Application menu: Acrobat (or Acrobat Reader) > About Acrobat (Reader).
