Проблема выглядит так:
This is without question the worst version of Adobe Reader/Acrobat I have used. The idea that I have to take an action to close a useless tools panel EVERY time I open a .pdf document is repellent. Not being able to apply a universal preference to hide the tools panel, seems to me to be a major design failure.
Okay, seems I've stumbled upon an ugly workaround but it works for me. I'm using Windows 8.1. Go to the install directory, i.e." C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroApp\ENU". Create a new subfolder (I used "Disabled"). Move 3 files from the "ENU" folder into the new "Disabled" folder: AppCenter_R.aapp & Home.aapp & Viewer.aapp. Open a PDF and no more Tool Pane! I originally moved just the "Viewer" file but if you clicked on "Home" or "Tools" on the toolbar you couldn't go back to the "Document." Moving all 3 files takes care of that issue. Like a lot of people I don't and won't ever use any of the tools. I just want a reader.
Workaround на мой вкус ничуть не ugly, по крайней мере не более, чем идея показывать никому нахрен не нужную ботву шириной в четверть страницы every fucking time.
