Oh, I misunderstood, thanks for clarifying! I think you mean you want to get rid of the tabbed interface and have the documents open in windows. If so, go to Preferences > General > and uncheck Open documents as new tabs in the same window (requires restart).

Preferences is in the Edit menu if you are on Windows.

Is this what you are asking?

Window menu > New Window, followed by Window > Tile if you want to see the windows side-by-side

Thank you for answering, but i want permanent solution for opening new pdf in new window, when one is opened in another window. It's boring to always move opened document from tab to window. And if i'll want to see windows side by side i can move windows it to borders of my screen (in windows os), that isn't problem.

Oh, no problem, and you're welcome—I'm glad you asked again!

This is the way Acrobat used to work before Adobe moved to the tabbed interface that other Adobe programs have been using.

Hi,

I'm looking to do this operation in Adobe Reader XI. The option "Open documents as new tabs in the same window (requires restart)" is not visible in preferences > general.

Is this not supported in XI, or moved to another menu?

Thanks

Adobe Acrobat 2023 ("New Acrobat") needs the option to open each document in a new window.

This should be possible without disabling New Acrobat.
