Is there a way to completely disable the popup that advertises the 'share' button?  It blocks the tools I need until it's manually dismissed and since I never share files online, it's nothing but an unnecessary and increasingly annoying interruption.

Hi Dan, Thanks for the info. At the moment, it isn't possible to customize the Share button.  Please file a feature request for the form via the link below: Feature Request/Bug Report Form to make the Share button customizable.Please also see the link - What's new in Adobe Acrobat DC  on the capabilities introduced by the Share button.-Shivam

Hi djsikors,

As per the issue description mentioned above, you want to disable the pop-up which appears when launching Acrobat, is that correct?

Would it be possible to share the screenshot of the issue with us? To share the screenshot here in the forums, refer to the steps given in this link: https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-7043#jive_content_id_How_do_I_attach_a_screenshot

You may also visit the following forum thread and see if this is related to your issue:

Disable or remove Share button new to Acrobat DC

Also, could you confirm the application - Reader or Acrobat you are using on the machine?

Thanks,

Shivam

The screenshot in reply #18 on the other thread you refer to is it precisely, so there's no need for an additional screenshot.  I am using Acrobat Pro DC, version 2019.008.20080.  As you can see, the pop-up covers the top two tools completely, and must be dismissed before they can be used.

Thanks!

Looks like the exact request I would make is already up there, so there's no need to do more than upvote it.  One hopes Adobe takes the request seriously; it's clear many users have issues with the so-called "big blue share button" and would like to see its presence made optional at a minimum.

Thank you for your time; I suppose we can consider this question closed.

Be REALLY nice if Adobe just fixed this poor behavior.  I see people have been complaining about it for years now. It's a major usability flaw. You should never interfer with a user's actions by throwing up un-necessary dialog boxes, especially for "value added" services that no one ever wants.
