Adobe Reader DC Logo

There appears to be an unresolved bug (as of writing this article) for users using Windows 10 and the free Adobe Reader in which only one PDF can be opened at a time.

Users can open the first PDF normally. However, once the Adobe Reader application is open a second PDF can not be opened. Oddly enough, double clicking on the PDF will add the PDF the to Recent Files within Windows File Explorer but it does not create a new tab or window within the Adobe Reader application.

This article provides a solution to the issue where you can not open multiple PDF’s within Adobe Reader.

I frequently use Adobe Photoshop to enhance and compress my web related images. When using the “Save for Web & Devices” feature it automagically replaces any spaces, within the filename, with a dash for Unix compatibility purposes. This is not always necessary, so in this article I will show you how to disable the automatic replacement of spaces with dashes when using Save for Web in Photoshop.

Another negative result of this automatic insertion of dashes in place of spaces is when uploading images to WordPress. WordPress pulls the filename and inserts it into the Title field for the uploaded image. For search engine optimization purposes this is okay, but the dashes make it look unsightly when you hover your mouse over the image on the frontend. I then have to manually remove those dashes from the image title and save the changes. Turning the insertion of dashes feature off when using the Save for Web & Devices feature in Photoshop would prevent these additional steps. So lets get into doing so.
