Acrobat DC: Closing that Pesky Right Hand Pane

Acrobat DC remembers the screen layout from one session to another, so if you close the right hand pane during one session, it remains closed the next time you open Acrobat.

In Adobe Acrobat Reader, you have an either/or situation. Choose Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Acrobat Reader > Preferences (Mac) and click the Documents category. Deselect the Open Tools Pane for Each Document checkbox. Close the preferences, then restart the program.

Make sure you have the update installed—choose Help > Check for Updates.
