Quick Tip:
Locate PDFs Quickly Using This Little-Known Extra in Acrobat 7

Acrobat 7 comes equipped with its own free file manager/browser and manager, called the Organizer. This little-known tool gives you quick access to PDF-files anywhere on your computer, even if you have multiple hard drives.

Organizer can track locations of any PDF you've viewed in the last 24 months, and show you the date and time a file was modified. You can sort by file name, number of pages, author, title, and much more. You can also print, email, and create PDFs from multiple documents directly from Organizer.

Best of all, it shows you little thumbnail images of each PDF document. Even if you have forgotten the name of the file you're trying to locate, the thumbnails will help you find it in an instant.

To open Acrobat Organizer, choose File > Organizer > Open Organizer or click the Organizer tool on the toolbar. It looks like an open file drawer with multi-colored files peeking out.
