Adobe "Browse for file/folder" function is poorly designed
in the new versions of Adobe, the browse for folder function - to open or save a file - is useless. Contrast it to every other conventional windows application, looking more like Windows Explorer where you can easily navigate to a folder, subfolder, file - but in Adobe, it immediately requires scrolling down, then selecting, scrolling down more, selecting a subfolder, etc.

If you are talking about the Custom dialog( that has Recent, Document Cloud, Add account etc. Panes on the left side) to Open/Save any pdf , you can always choose to turn it off whenever you wish to Open/Save any file.
Here is how you can use the default Windows File open/Save dialog in acrobat
1) go to Edit -> Preferences -> General -> Basic Tools
2) Deselect the checkbox that says "Show Online Storage when Opening Files" and "Show Online Storage when Saving Files".
3) Try File open/Save as again.
Now you will always see only the Windows dialog.
Let me know if that solves your concern.
