Is There A Way To Make A PDF Or Other Document Self Destruct Or?

Yes, either using a third party software or just using Batch script. 1. Check out this software. Cyber-D's Autodelete 3.12 if you prefer third party, it actually does what you want exactly. 2. This tutorial shows something similar using batch files and task scheduler. Auto Delete All Files Of a Folder, Desktop After A Time Interval 3.This very simple batch script does basically the same job. @echo off ping -n 11 127.0.0.1 > NUL del "test.txt" exit To use it, just open a text file, copy and paste these lines and save it as a .bat file in the same folder as the file you want to delete. Notice that you need to specify the time (in seconds) and the name of the file in the batch script. In my example, the number of seconds specified in line 2 is "11" (after "ping -n") to make it wait for 10 seconds (you always write n+1 instead of n), the name of the file is "test.txt", specified in line 3. If you don't want to put the files in the same folder, just explicitly specify the path in the del command. For example. del "c.\anyfolder\test.txt" Now your batch file is ready to run, when you run it you'll notice that it opens a CMD window you could either minimize it or just use another script to make it hidden. CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run "test.bat",0,True This script should be written alone in a .vbs file that is saved next to the batch script file. This time instead of double clicking the batch file, double click the .vbs and the command line window won't appear. I encourage you , if you spend a lot of time on computers, to learn Batch scripts and AutoHotkeys. Scripting is a valuable skill that you'll get in relatively short time and will magnificently help you with computers.

Password Protect PDF: All You Need to Know

The Web Browser The last option is the browser itself. Using a web browser would let you browse your PDF documents. If you are concerned about tracking or malicious activity, you might go with a privacy and anti-tracking browser. But then again if you Donahoe really want to make them track, you could just not download them. There are a lot of choices here, but I would say Google Chrome is the best option. For example, by default your browser uses a simple cookie based tracking which is not a problem if you do not track your own browsing habits but could be a problem if you Donahoe download your PDFs or Donahoe want to give someone access to your browsing history if you want to keep it private. As you can see, there are many possibilities for security settings and security tools.
