Adobe Toolbar Missing in Internet Explorer

A number of people have had problems with displaying the Adobe Toolbar in Internet Explorer 8 after upgrading to Adobe Reader 10 (X).

 After a little digging on forums and finding no real answer I had a lateral think and found the problem.

You need to fix this in the Adobe Reader software NOT in IE8.

  • Open up Adobe Reader.
  • Go to Edit – Preferences
  • Click on Internet
  • Remove the Tick from the Display in Read Mode by Default box

You should now find that the toolbar is back when you open a PDF in IE8.

Hope this works for you – it did for me.
