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.
