I have both Reader and Acrobat, but PDFs open into reader by default on my PC. When Reader opens, the screen displays both The Bookmarks and the All Tools side window. I want the program to start without either one of these. I have researched and NONE of these solutions work:
Prefernces-Documents-Remember current state of tools pane (https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/disable-right-hand-pane-in-acrobat-reader.html)
Prefernces-Documents-Restore Last View settings when reopening docunents
Preferences-Page Display- No corresponding commands
I'm devoting too much of my life to closing these side panels so I can see my document. Please help.

Sorry to hear about your experience.
Are you currently working with the Acrobat/ Reader New UI? We see that you have the settings '' remember the current state of tool pane'' is enabled. (this preference is only for Reader)
Just switch back to the old UI to see if the same preferences settings work in that or not. To disable the new UI
Let us know the result.
Meanwhile, we'll get it checked with our engineering team.
