    can't remove a pdf from my win10 desktop


    Hi there,

    I have a pdf file saved with symbols in it's name and i can't delete. I followed all of the recommendations in a similar post to no avail. I have tried:

    Safe mode

    Del + Shift

    Win Explorer Alt+P

    Renaming

    Cmd tells me it can't find the file I am deleting. I have copied and pasted the full name of the file but it still can't find it

    Scannow

    And everything else from the Feb 2019 post.


    Can someone suggest something else? The pdf file was saved with all symbols etc and I understand that is the problem.

    :)

  2. Best free PDF software?

    I use:
    • UnityPDF to merge/split PDFs and to insert/extract pages
    • doPDF to create PDFs from any program that is capable of printing
    • Foxit Reader to view PDFs and to type in them

  4. can't remove a pdf from my win10 desktop

    Searching in PDF?

    Hey guys, I need to look up a large list of data from a PDF file, basically just to check if each entry of the list is in the pdf. Is there some way to do this without having to check one by one?
