Acrobat freezes when closing minimized PDF from taskbar thumbnail
- In preferences uncheck Enable Protected Mode at startup. (This is a requirement for one of our business application Acrobat plug-ins)
- Minimize a PDF file that has been modified but not yet saved.
- Hover your mouse over the taskbar thumbnail of the PDF, but don't restore the window, then click the x from the thumbnail to close the file.
Acrobat freezes as the prompt to save changes pop up windows opens.
