I recently had to uninstall & reinstall Adobe Acrobat Standard XI because of an issue with the adobe printer not working. Prior to the un-install, I had an "open" button to the left of the "create" button on the quick tools toolbar. However, after the re-install the "open" button is now gone. - Please note: I am not talking about the file folder icon to the right of the "create" button. The one on the left would pull up a list of about 50 of the most recently opened pdfs & I could even search the list to find the file I needed.
Anyway, does anyone know how to turn on this "button"?
This is a screen shot of adobe showing the "open" button that I am talking about:
and here is a screen shot of what the quick tools looks like after the re-install:
As per the issue description mentioned above, you are not getting option to open pdf files in toolbar in Acrobat XI, is that correct?
Could you try following troubleshooting steps:
1- Download and run cleaner tool on the machine to uninstall Acrobat: Download Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool - Adobe Labs
2- Reboot the machine
3- Download and install Acrobat XI from here: Download Acrobat XI, Acrobat X
4- Reboot the machine again and check.
You need your Acrobat serial number to complete the installation.
