Try opening with Open from the File menu. Not double click to open. I believe that Save from the File menu will then usually just work.

I've developed a free tool that allows you to save your file with a single click, no dialogs or confirmations of any kind.

You can get it from here: https://try67.blogspot.com/2019/10/acrobat-reader-quick-save-free.html

I found the javascript file path to be different on Windows 10 and with 'Acrobat Reader DC'.
The required path was C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\Javascripts 

It works fine when put there 🙂

It does ask permission to access the folder each time during the save, but I can live with that. 1 click is way better then 5.

Thanks again.

++ adding on to experts advice.

I believe the pdf file you are working on isn't saved locally on your system. Its either an email attachment or opened through any other source.

At first time you would required to save the document. Open the file you just saved (not again from the source. Make further changes, now the consecutive changes will be saved to the same file with Ctrl+S or save option, rather than asking to replace file.

 

Hope this helps

 

Thanks,

Akanchha

Hi Akanchha,

I open these PDF files on my local system using a double-click within Windopws Explorer. I may then make a notation on them by adding a comment. Saving the file from here is the proces requiring all those steps. A Ctrl+S still makes me go through all those prompts to do the save. I'd really like a button or menu item that means "save this file right now where you got it from overwriting the original" - no further prompts.

"try67" has responded with a really neat offering which I'm going to try - thanks try67!

I'd be nice if this became an out-of-the box feature still 🙂

Graeme
