"Full Screen Mode" in Adobe Reader XI for Windows 8 loads way too slow!

I recently got a new laptop with Windows 8, after having used Windows Vista for years.  I installed Adobe Reader XI for my new computer.  Before, I used Adobe Reader X on Vista.  I used Adobe Reader "Full Screen Mode" to read the nice-looking Bible chapters I created with internet audio from Biblegateway.com.  In Vista, the "Full Screen Mode" appeared quickly, before the audio fully started, so I could see the text in time for the reading. 
However, with Windows 8, "Full Screen Mode" takes around 5-10 seconds to appear at all, and a black screen is present throughout the wait.  It does the same thing when I hit "escape" to exit "Full Screen Mode" as well.  I even uninstalled Adobe Reader XI from my new laptop, and tried using Adobe Reader X, even though it is not recommened by Adobe to do that on Windows 8, in order to test the speed of "Full Screen Mode" there.  Adobe Reader X had the same problem!  I do not know if this can be fixed, but I am pretty unhappy about it!  I enjoyed the "Full Screen Mode" with my PDF chapters and the online bible audio!  Finding that function for the first time with Adobe Reader X was a delight for me!  It gave the reading a theater feel!
Has anyone else here had a similiar problem with "Full Screen Mode" loading way too slow on Windows 8?  I am very disappointed!  If this cannot be fixed by a user, is there a place to complain to Adobe and make a recommendation for software improvement?  Thank you!

  • How do I get to full-screen mode in Adobe Reader 10.4.4 for ipad mini? It's vanished.

    I updated Adobe Reader and now double tapping activates zoom. There does not seem to be any way to go to full-screen mode, and reading with the header (time and battery life icons) is unpleasant.

    Thanks for taking the time to post -- especially to a thread that was started almost a year ago.  I'll give your suggestion a try.

  • I received an email containing pdf files. I am using Adobe Reader Touch for Windows 8. File doesn't open

    I received an email containing pdf files. I am using Adobe Reader Touch for Windows 8. File doesn't open. I am a new user to Windows 8.

    The full featured Reader for Windows 8 is Reader XI.
    Reader Touch works in all Windows 8 systems BUT it is intended mainly for use in mobile tablets - I see no particular reason to use it unless you can'r run Reader XI. Given it is mainly for use on mobile that can't use Flash, we aren't likely to ever see the development team spending their time on this.
    If you want the latest and greatest - at least try Reader XI, not X! (Flash is a separate download, it will prompt).

AcroRd32.exe Error, The instruction at 0x9068675f reference memory at 0x9068675f. The memory could not be written. Click on OK to terminate the program.  2.) Adobe Reader ha stopped working, a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution ia available.

    What is the Reader XI version you installed?
    Does this also happen when you open Reader by itself?  If not, can you try disabling Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].

  • I need to download adobe reader 9 for windows 7. Can anyone provide me with a link?

    I need to download adobe reader 9 for windows 7. Can anyone provide me with a link?  Anyone have a link for Adobe reader 9?

    I know it was crazy hard to find the links!
    My company paid for it and I hadn't been on in a while...
    It took some serious bookmark/history crawling to find!
    Here they are though!
    This is the Applecare Service Source portal or ATT:

  • How do you search bold text in Adobe Reader XI for Windows?

    We create documents electronically that contain bold text for a client. No matter what we try in Adobe Reader XI for Windows, bold text is not found. Is it not searchable? Is there a setting that we are overlooking to enable it? So far, only NitroPDF is the only program I can find that works.

    I just created a small test PDF (test_bold.pdf) with some bold words in it.  Reader XI (11.0.09) has no trouble finding these words.
    You can download the test doc from https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/333accd7-f54b-40f4-b06f-f14a3608f120
    Search for the word lazy that has been boldened multiple times in the doc.

  • Does Adobe Reader Touch for Windows 8 support forms with auto calculation?

    I'm using a preformatted form that contains auto calculations.  When I use it on Adobe reader 11 on my laptop, it works.  However, when I use the Adobe reader app for windows eight the auto calculations do not work.   Is there anything I Can do?

    Adobe Reader Touch (Windows Store app with "Modern" UI) does not support JavaScript yet.   Thus, auto calculations or field formatting will not work.
    If your operating system is Windows 8/8.1 (Pro), not Windows RT, you can install and run Adobe Reader XI (desktop app with classic UI).
    If your operating system is Windows RT, you may want to try Microsoft Reader (the built-in PDF viewer by Microsoft) to see if auto calculations work.

  • In full screen mode (with "Hide Toolbars" selected), is there a way to make FF stop bumping the page up and down everytime I move the mouse to the top of the screen to reveal/hide the toolbar?

    In other words, is there a way to make FF behave like IE9 in full screen mode where the toolbar appears "over" the page rather than pushing the page down?

    Hello,
    Could you please elaborate what exactly you are referring to with "I can't get the link to diplay as a different colour"?
    Regarding your second query, I am afraid it is not possible using Adobe Muse. However it can be a very nice feature request.
    I would suggest you to post this as a feature request on our "Ideas for features in Adobe Muse" section of the forums : http://forums.adobe.com/community/muse/ideas

  • Full screen mode: How to switch between open windows?

    Hi There,
    Is there way to get CMD + ` working in full screen mode?
    Other shortcuts like CMD + OPT [ ] to switch between open tabs and CMD + TAB to switch apps seem to work - but without the ability to switch between open windows within the same app, full screen mode is kind of useless.
    Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.
    BTW I'm using Yosemite but the forums won't find a Yosemite community (not sure the community search is working properly)
    Cheers

  • Adobe Reader Enterprise for Windows Server 2012 (R2)

    Hi,
    I want to silently install the latest version of Adobe Reader on a Windows Server 2012 server. When I want to download the offline installer at http://get.adobe.com/nl/reader/enterprise/ I do not see Windows Server 2012 (and/or R2) listed. Is the offline installer supported for Windows Server 2012 and/or Windows Server 2012 R2?
    How can I get this to work?
    Thanks in advance.

    The Technical Specifications are here:  http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/tech-specs.html
    It doesn't mention Windows Server 2012.
    If this is for Citrix or WTS you should get a distribution agreement and then also get the Distribution version of Adobe Reader.

  • How can I print from Adobe Reader Touch for Windows 8?

    I need to print information from my dropbox that is a .pdf format.  How can I print from ART for Windows8? I can't find the print icon nor does a right click give me the option to print.  I'm using a laptop, not a tablet. (And not loving Windows 8!)

    Please see FAQ: Printing a PDF file in Windows 8.
    If you are running Windows 8 on a laptop with an Intel-based processor, you can install Adobe Reader XI (desktop app with classic UI) alternatively.
    Go to your Windows 8 desktop.
    Go to http://get.adobe.com/reader/ in your browser.
    Download and install Adobe Reader XI.
    Launch Adobe Reader XI and open a PDF file.
    Select File > Print from the menu.

  • Firefox CONSTANTLY has a yellow bar on top of my screen nagging me to upgrade adobe flash but my processor is way too slow for that upgrade.

    I am on an older computer that works just fine, but the processor is too slow for the flash upgrade, nor do I have the other system requirements. What can I do to get rid of this nagging bar? I do not mind upgrading to a lower version of flash, providing it is light on memory;but don't know how to or where to get it. I have seen some archives of older versions but they require knowledge of how to do zip files, or how to do the download as it isn't automatic. I currently have something called "shockwave flash 9.0.45.0". The names are another confusing thing. They talk about shockwave flash, adobe flash player, adobe flash; are they all the same thing?
    michelle

    cor-el, thanks for your input. The problem I keep having is that I can't get the system requirements for any of the flash versions except 11, the latest. I have looked on a number of sites as well as adobe. There is no point to download something that won't work with my system, and overloads my memory. My processor is a pentium 3, about 927 mhz. The service pack is 2.
    Another problem I keep having is that for the older versions they keep telling me to "unzip" the file. I don't know what that means, or of course, how to do it.
    Really need some help and understandable directions as am new to computers. This one works great, and I resent these companies putting me in the position of having to buy a new computer just so I can get their newest programs, which in reality are often not as good as the old ones. I cannot afford another computer.

    How do I delete a downloaded pdf document

    You can go to your Windows 8 desktop, find the PDF document in Microsoft File Explorer, and delete it.  You do not need Adobe Reader Touch to delete files.
