Is there any way to hide these fixed menu buttons?

I'd also love to hide the "Home", "Tools", and "Document" tabs at the top left, if possible. 

These are all cluttering my workspace and I like to have only what I need up top.

Hi Quipstad,

 

We are sorry for the experience. As described above you want to hide the "Home", "Tools", and "Document" tabs at the top left.

 

This is a design behavior and we can not customize these options. However, there is an option to hide the menu bar using the F9 key on the keyboard and Tools bar using the F8 key OR go to View>> Showhide>> Menu bar/Toolbar items.

 

You may also, refer to the help article: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/is-it-possible-to-permanently-hide-the-menu-tools-bar-in-acrobat.... and see if that works 

 

Let us know how it goes. 

 

Regards

Amal

100% agree. I often shrink PDF doc (to move between multiple docs on my screen), and when I do so ALL I SEE are the darn Share, Feedback, Learn, Notifications and Account icons. Not any of the tools I actually need and use.

 

I know this is a built-in "feature," can't be altered, etc. But I wish Adobe would listen to its customers.

Thanks JR! Not sure where your reply went but I saw it in my email notification (now it's just dots). 

 

I have listed the menu items in the javascript console; now the trick is identifying the variable under which these are stored in order to hide it.

I deleted my answer when I realized that your question is about buttons, not about menu items.

My answer was :

Just uses the "hideMenuItem" method: https://help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/acrobat_dc_sdk/2015/HTMLHelp/Acro12_MasterBook/JS_API_AcroJS/ap...

I was looking for an answer here as well since I have the same problem. When I snap Adobe to the left or right of my screen it shrinks the window and hides the buttons I need to use, like fit to page, zoom, and editing. Other versions of Acrobat worked better.
