Adobe Acrobat Reader desktop shortcuts not deleting

This applies to Adobe Acrobat Reader DC & Continuous (x64) application installs & updates.

Application installs of both now populate the desktop shortcut where in the past the right-click option to remove the shortcut worked.

It also seems that after installing updates for Adobe Acrobat Reader DC that it made a desktop shortcut appear when it did not exist before. I assume it would do the same for the Continuous (x64) though I have not verified.

Thank you!


It's the same here. I've noticed that the option is greyed out for Reader DC and Continuous in the Publishing Settings window. Is this option not supported anymore?

Shortcuts may now be created by the Adobe Updates, this was not the case for previous updates. We will wait for Adobe to release whatever fixes they are going to fix, then re-evaluate this situation
