Attack of the annoying Adobe ads

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 4:07 pm

Since a quick Google search turns up only two sites mentioning this option, I figured I ought to spread the word about it on my blog, because I know I’m not the only person who finds this annoying…

For those who haven’t downloaded it yet, Adobe’s Acrobat…err…Adobe Reader 6.0 has some useful new features, but one of those features is a small advertisement which needlessly takes up space on the right-hand side of the toolbar (even when viewing PDFs within the browser!).

It turns out, however, that this ad can be turned off. The solution, however, is completely non-intuitive: in the Preferences window, under Startup, un-check the “Show Messages and automatically update” box.
