    Adobe X defaults to "Print to file"


      I have Adobe Reader 10.1.

      Whenever I try to print to my printer, the "Print to file" box is ticked by default.

      I know I have to uncheck "Print to file", but I have to do it every time because it has become the default setting.

      When one selects Print, the assumption should be that a printer is the intended output device


      How can I reset Adobe Reader so that the "Print to file" box is not ticked by default?

          I just fixed this issue. Running Adobe Reader X on Win7 x64 Enterprise.


          Locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\10.0\PrefsDialog and modify the key "aLastPrefsPanel" to say "Display". I found on the troubled PC it was set to "Startup"


          Note in your case it might be "10.1" rather than "10.0"


          That should do the trick.
