Speeding up Acrobat Reader

PDF files take time to open because Adobe Acrobat reader loads all the plug-ins at the startup. However, you can disable the plug-ins from loading in order to decrease the time required for Acrobat reader to start. For this purpose, you can use a utility called Adobe Reader Speed-Up.

On running Adobe Reader Speed-up for the first time, you will be presented with a dialog box with an option saying "Speed Up". Check the radio button next to it and proceed.

In the next dialog box, set the speed-up mode as "Speedup-Fast", which is the recommended setting and click on "Start". Click on "Finish" button after the settings are applied.

Now PDF files will open as quickly as Word Documents, not taking more than a few seconds.
