I Lost the New Acrobat Option... How Do I Get It Back?

While I was troubleshooting another issue with Acrobat Reader DC 64-bit, I ended up uninstalling, using the cleanup tool and then I installed the latest version of Acrobat Reader DC. Needless to say that this did not help the problem I was troubleshooting, BUT.......

After installation I was presented with the new Acrobat interface. At the time, because I was involved in troubleshooting the other problem, I turned this new interface off.

Later I decided to look into the new interface deeper. As I was trying to make up my mind as to which interface will help me more, I was switching back and forth between the New Interface and the Classic Interface.

A few days later I decided to go with the "newest and greatest". So, while in the Classic Interface, I dropped the View menu and, to my dismay, the "Enable new Acrobat Reader" menu item was nowhere to be found on the View menu.

  1. Where did "Enable new Acrobat Reader" menu option go?
  2. Why did it go away?
  3. How do I get it back, possibly without going again thru the uninstall, cleanup, reinstall loop?

I tried Registry Editor suggestions but they did not help.

I am on the latest version (2023.006.20360) 64-bit, with no plugins other than those that come with the installation.
