Q. How can I prevent the Adobe Acrobat My eBooks folder from appearing in the My Documents folder?

A. I describe how to prevent default folders from being recreated in the My Documents folder in the FAQ "How can I stop the My Videos and My Music subfolders from appearing in the My Documents folder in Windows XP and later?" at http://www.winnetmag.com/articles/index.cfm?articleid=41875. However, the procedure doesn't work for the Adobe My eBooks folder. To prevent the My eBooks folder from appearing in My Documents, perform these steps:

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Navigate to C:\program files\adobe\acrobat 6\reader\plug_ins.
  3. Move the ebook.api file to the C:\program files\adobe\acrobat 6\reader\optional folder.
  4. Close Windows Explorer.
  5. Delete the My eBooks folder from your My Documents folder. It shouldn't reappear.
