steve: <kvetch>What does the world look for most often? Printers, duh. So naturally MS gives this thing a name that puts it in the least convenient alpha order of the two possible answers.</kvetch>

I think because I use Classic Start Menu (sub-set of Classic Shell ), the Start Menu the "Settings" section contains "Printers" (user chosen and I also have Control Panel, Network Connections, Taskbar and Start Menu, etc. in "Settings") which I right-clicked and choose "Create Shortcut" and Woila!!! only the installed printer instances display...'-}}

>>Look for an Adobe PDF Security dropdown.

I'd been meaning to look in the PDF Settings but not gotten around to it and in the Security dropdown there are indeed options for requiring and setting a password. I thought I could create/save a predefined set of options with a password required but I just tested it and the security settings are separate from the other PDF settings and functions at a global level--either every PDF has a password or none of them do.

I need to discuss this with my sister in more detail to see what the rationale is as it could be that some other approach would also be workable. From the little bit of searching I've done, there are options out there but I think the most viable are probably the paid options--I don't trust applying PDF passwords online...

I'll report back what I find...
