New Feature: Open a PDF without all the ********
New Feature: Open a PDF without all the ********. Acrobat is UX trash. The PDF is about 40% of the window, the remaining is upselling or never-used sidebars or GIANT menus sparsely peppered with text. Just have a mode where you open a PDF and it shows the PDF. ZERO bezels. ZERO menus. Just your PDF. That's the 99% workflow anyway, just do it. 100% window utilization. Just do it.

This is Acrobat, not Reader. If I were using Reader, I would have posted in the Reader forum.
Closing an unwanted feature EVERY time a file is opened is not an acceptable workflow.
Going into Document Properties for EVERY file I have and selecting Initial View->Page Only is not an acceptable workflow.
I understand that Adobe can't relate to this, but many of their customers are trying to be productive. Busy people don't appreciate useless unkillable features interrupting their workflow hundreds of times every day. Please try hiring some smart and productive people who understand that time is valuable.

Thanks for writing down to us! I believe you are using Reader, which shows Tools pane on Left side and Naviagtion trail on right side.
To maximise the reading space, you can close the All Tool pane.
Alternatively, you can use Cmd or Ctrl+H to go to reading view of Reader.
