Turn Off Bookmarks on Side Panel (Adobe Pro)

Hello, 

Does anyone know how to turn off the side panels? My bookmarks are automatically extended (and in the way). I need to make this a default setting for ALL documents I open and not just make it a single document setting every time. Hope this makes sense. Thank you!

Whether or not the PDF bookmarks are visible when the PDF is opened is controlled by whoever creates and publishes the PDF, not the end user.

 

So, no, there's no way to globally set YOUR version of Acrobat to not open the bookmarks panel, if the PDF has been set by the author to show the bookmarks panel.

 

Best thing to do is just click the panel to snap it shut and out of your way.
