Lock tools in Adobe Reader DC

11/28/2016 1738 views

Hello together,

I have tried for some time now to disable some specific tools in Adobe Acrobat DC. If possible my company would like to allow only the "Cerftificates" tool.

At least, I would like to lock tools which are only available in the Adobe Acrobat.

Regarding the following Adobe website it should be possible to use a registry key to achieve that:


[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\<product name>\<version>\FeatureLockDown\AcroApp\cDisabled]



However, I have set this key and it doesn't seem to have any effect.

I would like to attach screenshots but it doesn't seem to work.

Does somebody have an idea? Thank you.

Kind regards,

  • what are you using for <product name>\<version> parameters?
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown\AcroApp\cDisabled
  • Found the mistake, I forgot the c at cAcroApp
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown\cAcroApp\cDisabled]
