Having a HUGE menu open on the left of a document when it opens is a royal pain *******. I cannot see my document, and have to find the * X to close it EVERY TIME. Make it smaller or have an option to not have it open.

Thanks for your feedback, In Acrobat Pro, you can customize this experience by retaining your last settings(Closed All tools tab) from Menu > Preferences > Documents > Restore Last view settings when reopening documents.
However, this preference is not available in Reader.
