Do I need both of these installed or does Acrobat Pro DC do everything Reader does?

acrobat does everything reader does and much much more.
do not install reader.
Thanks so much! I thought so, but then I was reading that since they are two different products, reader does a few things Acrobat doesn't do well. I'm sticking with your answer! thanks again. J
In theory, one can have simultaneous installations of both Reader and Acrobat. However, it does raise complications as to which of the applications actually opens PDF files when double-clicking (although there is a Preferences control for that).
Acrobat has a proper superset of Reader features. Thus for normal users, there is no good reason to have Reader installed if you have Acrobat installed. And you certainly don't and shouldn't mix and match Acrobat versions. That is really looking for trouble.
How can I delete extraneous pages from my American Express statements (i.e. delete the pages of ads and notices and keep only pages that pertain to charges/payments)?
The Document Properties, tab Security says:
Security Method: Passwork Security with a note "Can be Opened by: Acrobat 5.0 and later.
I have Acrobat DC 2020.009.20063
I removed Acrobat Reader and am now missing some functionality on editing Adobe pdfs as in my above question. Are the two related?
Can you please advise me what to do to regain this functionality?
