Foxit Reader How to Disable start Tab
You get this? Right? Every time you open Foxit Reader. It opens some extra tab labeled “start” you ignore that tab so you can read your pdf. Then you close Foxit Reader and get this notice “Hey… you have another tab open dummy, do you really want to close both tabs?” as if you will lose everything… It’s a fricken pdf, you won’t lose anything.
Anyway, after about 10 or so times telling yourself “I can deal with it , it’s better than Adobe any day” you kind of get sick of that stupid little notice.
So you want to disable the start up tab in Foxit right?
The fix is pretty simple.
Open any PDF file with Foxit Reader. Once that opens, click on “File” in top left of your screen. When the menu comes up look near bottom of that menu and click on “preferences” should have two gears next to it, click that button.
Once you click that button, you will get a pop up window called “Preferences” should be in the middle of your screen. Look to the left side of that small window and you will see a rectangle with a menu inside of it. Accessibility at the top, updater at the bottom. Now look near dead center, Says “General” click that word. The “open page now” changed to the “General interface”. Look at the bottom of that small window at “Application Start up” and you will see “Show start page” Uncheck that option. Click “Ok”, and you are done.
Now close Foxit and open a PDF and test it out. Foxit should be fixed now.
Why in the heck was this a good idea?
On another note, i found where you can edit that page and make it say whatever you want to.
