    Sorry I don't have an answer for you.  I have the same problem.  I am using Adobe Reader 8 and want to remove a PDF file that's on it.  Can find no option in the app to do that, nor any info in the HELP.  I also cannot find the document on my C drive.

     

    This is very frustrating.   I googled and found many, many posts offering help to remove the entire Adobe Reader program.  Like you, that's not what I want to do. (Although at this point I may just take that route anyway.)  I found one other poor soul at another geek forum who had also asked how to delete file on Adobe 7 way back in 2007.  The only answer provided there was some kind of command line action that was too geeky for me to figure out.  Her either I suspect.

     

    Is this some geeky secret they just don't want to reveal, or, as I suspect, a big, stupid mistake in Adobe software programming that nobody want to own up to or write a fix for?

     

    I'm getting increasingly frustrated with computer problems these days.  And yeah, I know it would all just be much easier if I became a geek, but that's not gonna happen.

    Use a mobile file explorer to find out the hidden or non reachable PDF files and folders in Nokia phones .

    Ah.  I see I posted to an incorrect thread.  I did not notice this was about Adobe for mobile phones.  I had been hunting for help in reference to the Adobe app on my PC.  So this is not an answer that is of any help to me.   Sorry for the confusion.  Thanks for taking the time to answer, smartintojose.  Hope it helps the others here.

    How can I delete a few of the pdf files that are in my Adobe LE viewer list?  There HAS to be a way to delete them.  I accidentally downloaded 4 of the same exact file and I only need to store one of them.  How can I delete the other 3 files?

    Sorry, I posted my question on this a LONG time ago and no one ever

    responded with a solution on how to do it.  If you find the answer

    elsewhere, please post.  Thanks.

    I was able to delete them by connecting my phone through USB to my PC and

    deleting the files from there.

     

    General instructions:   click on "USB connected" on the cell phone, it asks "do you want to mount this device?" - say 'yes'.  Then you will be able to see all files (not just pdf's) that are on your phone and delete them on the PC screen.  Then 'unmount' the cell phone from the PC and it should be all set.

     

    I do not know how to find any files other than pdf's on my cell phone.  I do this through an application that came on my phone called "PDF Viewer".  When my phone was connected to my PC, I did see that there were other files on my phone (like pictures, a scanned document .mdi file, etc.) but I do not know how to find these files using just my cell phone.  "PDF Viewer" was pre-loaded on my cell at time of purchase - it's apparently a part of "QuickOffice" which is another application that came with my phone.  But when I was connected to my PC, I could delete all files that I wanted to - not just the .pdf files.

     

    Hope this helps.

    My cell phone doesn't have that application option.  It's pretty basic since

    I use it only rarely.

     

    Weird that one can only delete files from Adobe using a phone!  LOL

     

    Thanks for the info though.
