Win Scan 2 PDF User-1:
I'm using the great win scann to pdf on Windows 10 Professional. When I save a document as a PDF file, the PDF document is automatically opened and displayed in WinScan2PDF with the Adobe PDF Reader. Now it saves the document as a PDF, but WinScan2PDF does not start the Adobe PDF Reader and displays the saved PDF file. The relationship is fine, when I click on a PDF document, it opens the sheet in the Reader. I have found a solution to this WinScan2PDF problem and can not figure out how WinScan2PDF should not open the newly saved PDF document as before.

I create some PDF files and that all day to save and print to them. After updating last week I downloaded the new version and then the pdf was automatically opened in Adobe Reader 11.0.10. Now they will not open anymore, and I have to open them manually, but it was much nicer when they opened themselves.
