Adobe has rebranded Adobe Acrobat Reader as adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The new version adds a toolbar that you can not permanently hide.
While you can temporally hide the toolbar by click on the arrow to close it, the next time you open Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, the bar will be back.
To permanently hide the toolbar:
- Go to ” C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroApp\ENU”
- Create a subfolder called “Disabled”
- Move “AppCenter_R.aapp”, “Home.aapp”, and “Viewer.aapp” to the “Disabled” folder
Now when you open Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, there will be no toolbar.
