    How to disable "Check out& open" option?

      Dear Support team,

       

      I have a question regarding the Acrobat functionality when working with powerpoint.

       

      When opening a PDF file on a sharepoint folder, Acrobat always asks whether I'd like to "Check Out & Open" a file, or just "Open" a file. When using Acrobat in 99% of the cases I don't need to do any modifications/comments/etc to the file, so I would prefer to avoid this question dialogue and proceed to opening the file. Is there any way to disable the checkout functionality in Sharepoint (i.e. open all files as read only")? Please will you let me know.

       

      Kind regards,

      Alexander
