Combining PDFs from Windows Explorer
In the past, I have been able to select multiple PDF files from a Windows File Explorer, right-click, and "Combine files in Acrobat DC..." However, lately it no longer works. The Acrobat DC program will open to the home tab, but then I have to go back to the explorer and redo the process, then it will work. So, it appears the program needs to be open before the combine PDFs option works. Is there a way to fix this, so it will open the program and go to the combine files tool immediately, other than repeating the process twice?
Three months later, no response... Simply. Awesome! 🤦♂️ Today, I started having other unrelated problems with printing. I selected a local printer and it asked me to save a local file. Then the print failed.
Anywho... if anyone is having the same problems and is reading this. I was finally able to force the 64-bit installation (instead of the 32-bit version) on my 64-bit machine. Surprise, surprise, things are working again.
Thanks for nothing feedback/support board.
Admin? Help Please?

Up until the recent release, I have been able to right mouse click on a number of files (usually word documents) in Windows Explorer, select Combine Files and Acrobat DC will open them and combine them into one PDF file called binder1.pdf. Now, when I do the same action, it opens the 'combine files' window, converts the first file to PDF and then the process seems to hang, even though the blue progress bar at the bottom is moving, nothing happens. Previously the process was very quick and converted and combined 10 documents in the time that it now takes to convert one file (and didn't hang).
When I select the same files, right mouse click and select convert to PDF, I am then asked to save to PDF for the same file twice. As you can imagine, this gets tedious trying to convert 10 documents at a time.
Still looking for a response. Are there any admins here?
Bump for a response!
