    Acrobat Pro DC has Photoshop icon

    Patrick97 Level 1

      Hello,

       

      When i turned on my machine today my acrobat pro dc had the icon of Photoshop.

      Fixed it by creating a new link. Thats a quiet nasty bug for an application that costs so much.

      Windows 10 64

      latest cc versions

      Edit: To be more clear, If I search for the application in windows it still shows the Photoshop icon.

          Hello Patrick97

           

          We apologize for the inconvenience caused, as per the description above the icon of Acrobat Pro DC is showing as an icon of Photoshop, as visible in the screenshot, Is that correct?

           

          Please try the steps mentioned below:

          • Remove, unpin or delete Adobe Acrobat Pro DC icon from the Start Menu, the desktop and (if you have it there) from the taskbar.
          • Go to C: > ProgramData > Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu > Programs and you'll find the "Adobe Acrobat Pro DC" with the wrong icon. That looks like a shortcut. Delete it!.. Close the window.
          • Go to C: > Program Files (x86) > Adobe > Acrobat DC > Acrobat... and find Acrobat.exe
          • Right click on Acrobat.exe > Send to > Desktop
          • Right-click again on Acrobat.exe > Pin to Start Menu... and close the window
          • Right click on Acrobat.exe - shortcut (that you just created on your desktop) > Copy
          • Go back to C: > ProgramData > Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu > Programs... and Paste the shortcut here (you need administrator privileges for that)
          • Rename this shortcut from "Acrobat.exe - shortcut" to "Adobe Acrobat  Pro DC"
          • Close the window
          • Now if you open any PDF document, the right icon will appear on the taskbar.

           

          Let us know how it goes.

           

          Regards,

          Anand Sri.
