There's no such option. This is a built-in part of the application and can't be "turned off".

I can think of two things you might be asking:

  • To hide the Bookmarks panel from the left-hand navigation panels, go to View menu > Show / Hide > Navigation panels > uncheck Bookmarks. You can also right-click in the blank area under the Navigation panels.
  • If the Bookmarks panel is opening automatically when you open a PDF, go to File menu > Properties Preferences > Initial View and set the initial view to "Page Only", then save the document.

    If the file is locked for editing, then you can't make the change. Only someone with the password can make the change. In case someone reads this later, it cannot be changed with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader either.

 

Is this what you are asking?

 

EDIT: changed "preferences" to "properties". Thank you Bernd.

neither of these options solves the problem permanently for all files, it only solves it to a single pdf file, I need to apply it for all documents that I can potentially open.

That's correct. When the creator chooses to show the Bookmarks panel when the file is initially opened, that is not something you can override. 

 

You can make a feature request to the developers here: https://acrobat.uservoice.com/
