Move QuickTools from side panel to toolbar

Is there a way to make my quick tools display in my tool bar at the top, rather than having them all contained in a separate drop down menu?  I use Adobe Acrobat a LOT (my office is paperless so I'm literally using Adobe all day long), and I'm constantly having to do extra clicks to open that drop down to get to my quick tools.  It's bogging me down.  My prior version of Adobe showed my quick tools on my tool bar across the top of my screen on the tool bar, making them much quicker to get to.  Can they be moved?

Yes that's exactly what I want.  But mine don't show across the top, the show up in a drop down inside of the icon with three dots (as highlighted below).  How do I get them to show across the top instead?

Here is what it looks like when I click that drop down icon.  My Quick Tools show up here, rather than across the top:

expand your acrobat window so it's wide enough to show your quick tools.

There is nothing to expand, the window is already actual size and takes up the entire screen.  Any other ideas?

get a wider monitor or use fewer tools.

if your acrobat window isn't wide enough to display your tools, you'll see those dots.

LOL, OK.  Here's what the toolbar looked like in my old version, a little more user friendly to say the least.  But I digress.

The new version doesn't appear to allow you to move the toolbar. (super annoying) I went to the Edit and switched to the old version.  Toolbar back on top

Thanks, the page selecting in the bottom-right of the Acrobat window was annoying. By "Disable new Acrobat" -as they called it, I returned to the old UI which is much better.

Agreed. The new version's UI is much worse. A UI is supposed to make things easier to use - not harder to find.
