Add option to keep documents from moving/resizing Acrobat window
Some PDF documents seem to contain meta data content that's causing Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Acrobat Reader to move/resize their program window when such document is opened.
This behaviour is rather annoying and it may lead to accessibility issues.
Please, either stop Acrobat/Reader from moving/resizing their program window when opening a document containing such meta data information, or provide an accessibility option in Preferences to optionally have Acrobat ignore that meta data information.
The issue faced by you is due to the setting of the document set by the user. Please see the following setting in the document :
1. Open Document→File → Properties → Initial View Tab → uncheck Center Window on screen
Please make sure the setting is not checked in your document to avoid the issue.

Lyle Waters is correct! This solution is NOT a good one. The window has already resized and moved. A user can change the setting for NEXT time. Users need something that overrides whatever the file's "initial view" setting. I can easily adjust a file (new tab) but chasing a known and liked window around the screen is bonehead. It is MY window not someone telling me how to view their file.

This solution in not a good one. Many of us receive PDF files generated by others and thus we have no control over this "initial view" setting. There should be a way to have the Acrobat program itself have an override of this setting. How would you like it if you had dozens of people each sending you files that changed the size of the Acrobat window on your computer?
I cannot add attachments here. So please give me your information on where to e-mail my files to.
Sure, do you have an address I can send a sample PDF file to?
