Thank you for providing the instructions on how to change the default file save location of a newly created pdf file. I am aware of how to make this path change following the linked article however, the question remains whether this pathing be modified to allow the newly converted pdf to save in the same folder as the original file being converted whether that's a docx or otherwise?

I tried replicating the issue on my machine ( with Acrobat XI version 11.0.23) with a sample word file in explorer > right-click > convert to Adobe pdf and it saved the pdf to the same location as the original file. For ex.- downloads folder. Could you check if you have the latest version of Acrobat installed on the machine by clicking "Check for updates" option under "Help" menu, reboot the machine after installing update and try again.

If that doesn't work, try resetting preferences for Acrobat using the steps given in this link: How to reset Acrobat Preference settings to default. reboot the machine after resetting preferences and try again.
