Is it possible to disable the recent files? I didn't find anything in the options, is there perhaps a registry entry that can be changed?
I want to disable it because I don't need it, 99% of the times I open a pdf file only once, read it and then delete it, so the recent files is just a list of useless, deleted files.
Its not possible to disable the feature as it is a core part of Adobe Acrobat DC/ Reader DC.
However you can turn off the listing of Recent files.
Open Acrobat, navigate to Edit menu -> Preferences -> Document -> Set "Documents in Recently used list" to 0.
Click OK to confirm.
Could you please pass along a suggestion to offer the option to remove individual items from the recent file list and a way to pin frequently used ones to the top? There are some files that I frequently need to access, and many others that I open and only need once, so it would help a lot to be able to clear the ones that aren't useful. Thanks!
Done! Thanks for the link, didn't know such a page existed.
Thank you. That's a very useful tip.
Now is there a way to disable the "Recent" window that hides behind the current PDF?
