  • How to Locate Files in History List ? Any help is Great Appreciated !!

    Good morning,

    Interested if anyone can offer assistance on this ??
    Foxit PhantomPDF crashed this morning and I had a number on engineering documents for work open at the time.

    Reading through the foxit forums , I found the following info from Super Moderator Cherry :

    " The history record will not be displayed within Foxit Reader, but it has been saved under this registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader 9.x\Preferences\History\LastOpen "

    *** Here's the question now ... I located the Last Open files using Registry Editor, although the File Names are all shortened to the point where the folder locations cannot be identified easily.

    for instance C:\Users\MB~1\ONEDRI~1.C\ATTACH~1\1PLANO~1\TIMETA~ 1\20A92C~1.PDF

    Is there a way to export the registry file then import it back somehow ?? So I can find the folder location or reopen the files ??

    I would GREATLY APPRECIATE Your help !! Thank you,
