So when I open a PDF it will automatically open zoomed to 176%. However that does not allow me to see everything on the PDF that I need to so I either have to scroll or change the zoom. I know I can hit CTRL+0 and it will zoom to page level, which is the perfect size for what I need. My question is if there is any way to change the setting so that it will automatically open to this zoom level or a similar one so that I do not have to change it every time.
As per the description above, you want to set the zoom to page level when opting a PDF, Is that correct?
Please navigate to Adobe Reader's Preferences from Edit>Preferences>Page Display>Under "Default Layout and Zoon", change the "Zoom" drop-down menu to the desired setting.
If this setting does not appear to be working for you, it might be because it is overwritten by the “Accessibility” settings. Check them with these steps.
Launch Adobe Reader>Select Edit>Preferences>Select "Accessibility">If “Always use Zoom Setting” is selected, Reader will use the setting specified in the drop-down menu on this screen.
Also, some PDF files hare their own pre-defined zoom settings.
