Hi There,

Apologies for the trouble caused, as described above you have updated the application to the new version and want to reopen the PDF from the last session, correct?

With the new release v19.12.20036, now we can manually set the preference to reopen the PDF from the last session. Go to Edit (Windows), Adobe Reader / Adobe Acrobat DC (Mac) > Preferences > General > Check, Open PDF from the last session on Acrobat launch> click Ok

For more information, you may also refer to the help article -

I am trying to activate this setting in Acrobat X Pro, but my Preferences screen is different from the one shown by Amal in the example, above.  I have no box (clickable or otherwise) or option for “Open PDFs from last session on Acrobat launch” at all.   >confused<  This is a partial screenshot from my Preferences :AcrobatX.Preferences.png

 

As you can see, my Preferences > General has far less available options.  This might be a version issue as my software is over ten years old.  If anyone can tell me how, on the version of Acrobat I have, to set it to re-open all the PDFs I had opened the last time I was using the program, I’d really appreciate it.  Thanks in advance.

This option did not exist in Acrobat X.

 

However, you can save and load sessions (although not automatically) using a script, like this (paid-for) tool I've developed: https://www.try67.com/tool/acrobat-reader-save-and-load-sessions
