Renaming a PDF file.

Mar 1, 2013 12:34 PM

In Adobe Reader X...when I rename a pdf file that is on my desktop, and upload it to a report it appears on the report with the previous name.  I want it to appear as I have renamed it.  Please help!

    This doesn't look like a problem of Adobe Reader.

    Why do you change the file extension?  The extension should always remain .pdf

    Windows Explorer has some strange default setting: 'Hide extensions for known file types' is checked by default.  This may have been the cause of your trouble when not seeing the '.pdf' extension.

     

    This is always one of the first things that I turn off after a new Windows install.
