Fix Time Matters Save in Acrobat

Today a release of Adobe Acrobat broke the Time Matters Save button. Here is a fix. The code is courtesy of Tom Caffrey.

Heads Up: This fix changes the Windows Registry. It worked fine for me, but your results may vary. The most cautious approach is to perform an image backup of your computer. Second most cautious approach is to back up the Windows Registry.


To fix the issue:

Copy the following line by highlighting it (triple-click on any word) and pressing Ctrl-C:

Reg Add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\19.0\Privileged" /v bProtectedMode /t Reg_Dword /d 0
  1. Now type cmd in the Windows Search box (lower right corner of Desktop).

  2. Right-click on Command Prompt

  3. Choose Run As Administrator and click OK

  4. Right-click at the prompt and choose Paste

  5. Press Enter

Repeat these steps on each computer.
