    Abobe Reader X can't change default save location on second save

    Newbie603

      When i save something in Adobe Reader X the first time my default save location goes to My Documents(which is good), but if I then try to save a second document it goes to a temp folder located in "local settings\temp\"XXXX".  The "XXXX" is a random number. I don't understand how it can find the right location the first time and the second time go into the Temp folder

          Solved it!

           

           

           

          1-go to "edit", select Preferences.

           

          2-select from the left pane: Security (enhanced)

           

          3-click on "add folder path" button just below the big white box

           

          4-pick a folder of your choice and click "ok". (your selected folder path will appear in that white box above the "add folder path" button in step 3)

           

          5-if you want to add additional folders, just repeat steps 3 & 4

           

          6-once you are done, click "ok" on the preferences screen and click "ok" again to accept the changes.

           

           

           

          Yes, it seems illogical, but it worked.

           

          I tested by closing the Reader (X), then surfed the web and did what Neher5 was explaining he/she wanted to do just after opening a pdf from a website and lo-and-behold,  it worked!. No more "save to temp folder" issues.

           

           

           

          Hope this helps.
