Dean Wiebe at DWTips shares a tips on speeding up PDF loading on Adobe Acrobat. He suggests that most of the stock plugins are not used by most users – and to move them out from loading by default – the loading speed will be increased:
To disable unneeded plugins and make them optional instead, follow these instructions:
1. Install the latest version of Adobe Acrobat – you can get it here
2. Browse to the plugins folder: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\plug_ins
3. Create a new folder named Optional
4. Move all files from the plug_ins folder to Optional, except EWH32.api, print*.api, and Search*.api
You really can feel the difference!
