I am working with many pdf files using Acrobat Pro DC. I tried to open all of them and go back and forth to edit or make annotations on them. But when I open more than 50 pdfs simultaneously, I get error message saying that I cannot open them anymore. I think my computer has enough memory and cpu power to handle more than the limit. Is there any option or preference setting to increase the limit of concurrent tabs?

I don't think so. Maybe through some obscure Registry setting...

I am wondering the same thing, did you end up having any luck?

The question I have is why would you even consider opening that many PDF files at one time?

I had to do meta-analysis among many scientific papers. Backward and forward tracking were required so I had to open many tabs. It is possible to close some tabs and open other PDFs but opening them all at the same time is more efficient for my work.

I believe Bernd is suggesting opening 25 files in Acrobat and 25 files in Reader.

I tried to open 50 PDFs at once and got the message about too many files.

I opened 50 PDFs one at a time until 50 tabs were open, and did not see the message.

(Mac, Acrobat version 2021.001.20142)

If the PDFs are complex and opening slowly, you can try making a copy and running an action to save as an optimized PDF (applying the action to the folder) to reduce the size.
