I always like to view documents one full page at a time.  Is it possible to set  "fit one full page to window" as the default view?

Great answer by Ankit_Jain, however really it's only suggestion #2 that answers the question. Suggestion #1 has other intended side effects, and I personally wouldn't want that behavior, even though I was also looking for this same solution of "fit one full page to window" by default.

Ankit_Jain is correct for documents that have already been opened, however if you want every document to open in the same way (regardless of having been opened before) it does not work. Any other solutions?

Seems to work on all PDFs, regardless of whether the PDF has been opened.  Thanks Ankit!

For the original question, you can go to Edit>Preferences>Page display>Default layout and zoom an in the "page layout" drop-down select "Single page".

If that doesn't work, someone could have added opening preferences at document level using Adobe Acrobat.

I wanted to help out with this question.  Lots of answers people were giving didnt work for me and I finnally found a perminant solution.

 

First off this is a solution to always have full screen fit to one page everytime you open a new or priviously opened documant for Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Ver 19.021.20061 on a Windows 10 Machine.

 

That said - The thing I found out is I had to create an adobe profile and login into adobe reader with that login.  From there you have to click your profile circle (Top right coner) and click prefferances there.  Then go to "Page Display" in top right window pane and select dropdown "Page Layout" to Single Page & "Zoom" to Fit Page.  Then click OK and from here on out you will open all PDF documents to single page fit zoom.  

 

Hope that helps!!!

When I click on that upper right hand profile circle all I get are these in the drop down menu....I have PDF Reader Pro Lite Ver. 2.7.4 and am using a Mac with Catalina OS 10.15.4. I would love to open fit to page AND on my mac the the view is not the whole screen, I have to strecch the lower right hand corner to the bottom of screen. Any suggestions?

Also, it's not in Account Settings....Screen Shot 2020-04-19 at 10.45.19 AM.jpg

(I recently upgraded to Catalina and lost so many 'old' apps, Microsoft word, PDF Acrobat X, Nikon apps etc. it sucks! All to get one new app)

Setting these works only if custom Page Display preferences aren't set in PDF file:

Edit>Preferences>Page display>Page layout>Single Page

Edit>Preferences>Page display>Zoom>Fit page

 

To override that, need to also change accessibility settings:

Edit>Preferences>Accessibility>Override Page Display>Always use Page Layout Style>Single Page

Edit>Preferences>Accessibility>Override Page Display>Always use Zoom Setting >Fit Page
