Windows 7: File List pane not showing in Save Dialog

File List pane not showing in Save Dialog

Hi,
Four days ago, suddenly file list pane disappeared when I try to save a document. At first file list was absent only when printing file to a PDF but now I'm not able to see file list pane in any of the saves in any document. I had updated Acrobat X when I had received an automatic update and I suspect that is when that happened so today I removed Acrobat X and problem did not go away so I made a fresh install of the version that was working for me but the problem still persists. I now have to type the name of the file I want to save while before I would select an existing file from the list and then modify the name slightly to reflect the version number. I have shown this problem to a few techies and they are stumped. I have tried to search for this problem but have not found a solution either.
Thanks,
Regards,
John

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

I would imagine the simplest solution would be a system restore to a point before you downloaded and installed the Acrobat update, and then keep any eye out for any updates you're offered before they are downloaded.

Dear Seavixen:
May God bless you. This was what the Doctor ordered. It worked and I'm back in action.
Thanks,
