Subject:Windows 7 and PDF thumbnails From:Kaye Adkins <kadkinsphd -at- gmail -dot- com> To:techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com Date:Tue, 13 Mar 2012 10:38:19 -0500
I have an extensive library of PDFs that I use for my teaching and
research, and I find viewing thumbnails a quick way to spot the PDF I'm
looking for (can see the main title, tell if it's a journal article, etc.)
I've just gotten a new computer with Windows 7, and find that I can't view
the PDF thumbnails anymore. I've looked at various user forums on the
Internet, and have found some explanations, but no satisfactory solution.
Does anyone know if there is a solution that doesn't involve messing with
the registry or something equally complicated? Some of the fixes involved
Acrobat Reader, but I don't even have Reader on this machine--just Acrobat
Pro 9. Is there a fix coming soon?
