Acrobat Reader 11 (XI) : No scroll bar on the right, and I cannot find the option in "preferences" to enable it. Annoying to have to "grab and pull up" all the time. How do I enable it?
Are you on a Mac or Windows?
Is this a Touch Device like a tablet or Surface Pro?
Kind-of, but not really. It's technically a Dell laptop, but it's one of their 2-in-1 models, the kind you can flip the screen behind the keyboard and use "tablet-style," but it's a laptop.
It might be "Touch Mode".
1. Go to Edit>Preferences>General>Basic Tools section.
2. Select Never in the Touch Mode pop-up menu
3. Click OK in the Preferences window.
See if that makes a difference
GENIUS!! That was simple. I saw that, but didn't know what that meant.
another resounding THANK YOU!!!
Thanks. THis solution is exactly what I needed. It is still annoying as heck that a visible scroll bar is not the default; what was Adobe thinking? 🙂
WOW HOW DID YOU FIND THIS I WOULD OF BEEN SCROLLING FOR LIFE!!!! THANK YOU
Thank you for this solution. It is appreciated.
hello, How about macbook pro?
Thank you EQuijano! Thank you NOT Adobe for burying this setting and making it as NON-INTUITIVE as you possibly could.
How do you do this on a MacPro laptop? I have tried everything. Including your suggestion above. There is no Never in the Touch Mode pop-up option.
just disable touch mode in
view > show/hide > toolbaritems > touch mode
Thank you so much for this. Couldn't find it anywhere else. It worked for me!
