The troubleshooting steps in the linked article have been tried by me and multiple Adobe tech support personnel. They have not worked.
I cannot use the solution marked in the linked thread. When I right click on my Acrobat 2017 pro icon, click on properties and select the compatibility tab, Windows 10 is NOT listed. Is this the problem? My Acrobat 2017 pro is incompatible with Windows 10? If so, why did I just begin having this problem last week? I've had Acrobat 2017 pro on this Windows 10 computer for many months.
