Cannot Hide Tools Pane in Pro DC
I cannot permanently close the tool pane. There is no "Open Tools Pane for Each Document" option to turn off in Edit >> Preferences >> Documents. When I manually close the tool pane with a document open, close the document and reopen it, the tool pane doesn't "stick" closed. It's open again. I am rarely, if ever, going to use anything in the tool pane. It's large and annoying. I don't want to see it every time I open a document. How do I get the tool pane to go away without having to manually close it with every document I open?

I am having the same issue in Acrobat Pro DC 2020.006.20042 on Windows.
How do I get the right tools pane to stay closed when I enter commenting mode?
I have the same issue and would appreciate a response with a fix.
Here is a temporary solution while Adobe fumble around with excuses:
1.Go to the install directory and head to the AcroApp\ENU subfolder, usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroApp\ENU”.
2.Create a new subfolder, the name doesn’t matter – for example “Disabled”
3.Move the following 3 files from the “ENU” folder into the new “Disabled” folder:
AppCenter_R.aapp, Home.aapp & Viewer.aapp
4.Open a Adobe Acrobat Reader and the Tool Pane is no more!
Yes i would suggest you to kindly update to the latest version of Adobe Acrobat DC.
Once you collapse the Right hand tools pane, it will always appear collapsed for you unless you expand them again in further sessions.
Ayush - ummm...so I keep trying to reply to you but my comments don't appear. What's going on?
I am using version number 2015.007.20033. This appears to not be the latest release. I have Acrobat Pro through a company. My company's IT controls release of programs and their updates. Before I request an update, I'd like to know if the latest release removes the tools pane and keeps it removed from view. Thanks.
I have Version 2015.007.20033. It appears that this version is not the most up to date. As I have Acrobat Pro through a company that controls updates, I'll have to request an update to the program. Before I do, I need to know if this issue is fixed or not in the latest release. Thanks!
Really sorry for the issue that you are facing here.
I would request you to kindly have the latest version of Acrobat installed on your system.
