Adobe Acrobat Question

When I click to open a PDF file, I get a yellow bar at the bottom which offers me 'OPEN', 'SAVE', and 'CANCEL' (see the attached file).  The 'SAVE' option offers me a drop-down that allows me to 'SAVE', 'SAVE AS', or 'SAVE & OPEN'.

Currently, the default is 'SAVE'.  

Does anyone know how to change the default so 'SAVE & OPEN' is the default for clicking the button and the other two remain "options"?

Looking forward to the replies.

I also have 10.1.7 and do not see that dialog. When you said:

"When I click to open a PDF file..."

I asked what program and you said:

"Adobe Acrobat" (later to find out it is version 10.1.7)

When I do a file open in Acrobat 10.1.7, I get a browse-for-file dialog and when I click a PDF, it opens. Do you mean that you're clicking on a PDF file in Windows Explorer? Or Internet Explorer? I don't know how you can get the dialog that you posted in the screenshot when you're in Acrobat.

If I get an email with a PDF and I click to open it, I get that yellow box.

If I run a report in IE that renders a PDF, I get that yellow box.

OK. so you're not trying to open a PDF while in Acrobat...you're doing it in email and a browser.

> If I get an email with a PDF and I click to open it

What email client or webmail? Outlook (client)? Outlook (web)? Thunderbird (client)? Gmail (web)?

> If I run a report in IE that renders a PDF

What version? IE9? IE10?

Let's go with the IE10 scenario.  10.0.9200.16686S.

Forget email....only talking about IE10 for now.

OK, so you're running a program (in IE10) that produces a PDF file called <Rpt_OBPrintInvoice.pdf>. The program is generating the dialog with the Open/Save/Cancel buttons, so that program would have to provide you with an option to change the default action when clicking Save. What program is creating the report?

It's a home grown application, but the OPEN, SAVE, CANCEL bar is an Adobe bar or an IE bar.....definitely not a bar that the app renders.

That is the default IE save dialog - nothing you can do about.
(But I am going to double check if there is maybe a reg edit)

Thanks.....anxiously awaiting a reg-edit to change.  Hoping....but not holding my breath.

I checked all of the keys in <HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main>, which seems like the logical place for it, but didn't find anything that looks like the right key.

No, cannot find any way to change it.

Exactly. Any open functions have been removed from any automatic or simple one click in the IE dialog for "policy reasons". To my understanding this is a hard code that you cannot change.

I read this as "making sure no one accidentally opens anything malicious".

So I don't think this will be a simple change in the registry or GPO.

Split is appropriate, but I concur with objection to delete as this question comes up often enough and 'Cannot be done' is the only valid answer.
