Adobe has launched its new product called Adobe X which features the protected mode which is turned on by default. The protected mode is nothing else than a “secure lock” which protects your computer (and your privacy) by simply preventing infected PDF files from automatically opening and installing malicious software on your machine. This quick trick will show you how to turn it on and off! In case you don’t know what the new Adobe Reader is, here is a small list of its features:
- It lets you see PDF files which contains videos, drawings, graphics and multimedia files.
- You can make small note on any PDF files and share them with your co-workers/friends by using the Sticky Notes and Highlighter tools.
- Use new, improved options and shortcuts to enhance the way you read a document.
- Easily access online services within your PDF documents.
If you wish to turn on or off the Protected mode, follow these easy steps:
- Open your Adobe Reader X.
- Click Edit located on upper left side of the toolbar.
- Click Preferences.
- The Preferences window will appear on your screen. Select General Category from the right left pane.
- Tick or Untick the Enable Protected Mode at Startup checkbox to enable or disable the feature.
