I got a new laptop. I downloaded the free Adobe Reader DC and all I can do is open and read PDF's. I can no longer combine files, organize pages, etc. Why is that? My old laptop had Adobe Acrobat DC. Is that still available for free download? Why can't I find it anywhere? Please advise.
Did you notice that it's free? The free version lets you open and read PDFs, fill out forms, make Comments, do a Save As... to send those documents to anyone who is supposed to receive the.
But if you want to combine files, organize pages, etc. you do need to purchase or subscribe to Adobe Acrobat Standard DC (if you are on Windows) or Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (for Mac and Windows).
I hope this helps you but I know it's not what you wanted to hear and for that I'm sorry.
I do not believe I had Pro before. I don't think I had to pay in the past. Is this a new thing?
Acrobat Reader, the free software, has no free ability to combine files, organize pages, etc. and never had such a capability. You must have either had Acrobat Standard or Acrobat Pro installed.
