I have Adobe Acrobat 2017 installed on over 1,000 computers.  I need to change a certain setting globally.  The setting is "Ask to replace existing PDF file" option.  It's currently unchecked by default.

Here is how to get to the setting using a Windows 10 computer.  From the Start menu search for "Printers and Scanners".  Then under Printers & Scanners > Adobe PDF> Manage > Printing Preferences.

This is a hex value and would not be a supported method of changing the setting but...

Try at this location:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModePerUser]

"Adobe PDF"=hex:[HEX_VALUE]
