I have a Windows 10 pc that has a few drives mapped. If you open file explorer you can see them and use them, but within Outlook or Acrobat, the mapped drives do not show up. How can I correct this situation?

Did you map the folders with NET USE X: \\server\folder  ?   If you do it that way, folders show up fine in Office and Adobe.

Using explorer or the command line does not make a difference.

If it does for you, that would mean that you run either acrobat or explorer in a different user context than the other.
