The annoying Adobe Reader right side exportPDF panel

Have you opened adobe reader recently to read a PDF file only to find out that the adobe reader window shows an annoying right grey window or side panel called adobe exportPDF?

You are not alone, adobe exportPDF is there to edit PDF, create PDF or sending PDF files.

But we only want to read a PDF, right?  - so why do they bother us with this window?

Refer to the photo above.
In the Menu click "view" then find and click "Read mode", e voila, the sidebar is gone. You can also simply use Control + H and it's gone too.

To make it reappear, click "tools" in the menu and the sidebar pops up again.

Hope that helped.

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC - Adobes newest annoying download - updated nov 2015

I was recently prompted to update my adobe reader and without knowing it I now got their new Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, which is adobe's newest PDF reader. Wow how annoying this is!! - and I am not alone. Read here on Adobes forum: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1810236

"How do I stop the side toolbar from appearing every time I open a pdf in Acrobat DC?"

"Right side tool bar is annoying in Acrobat DC. How can this be fixed?"

​and here: Adobe Reader Acrobat DC: what where they thinking??  https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1835765

​I un-installed adobe acrobat reader DC after few days and reinstalled Adobe reader 11 - and am happy again.

Un-install the new DC version and get the good old adobe reader back. Download the old Adobe reader version here: http://get.adobe.com/dk/reader/otherversions/

beware NOT to download that annoying google toolbar. untick

Alternatively get rid of adobe pdf reader - get a NON-adobe pdf reader

Obviously Adobe dont care a s... about their users and user experience. Here is what I just did: I un-installed Adobe acrobat reader DC, installed the old Adobe reader 11.0. THEN un-installed this also and got a decent PDF reader, the best NON-adobe pdf reader. Look here: PDF-XChange Viewer and what a relief to get rid of adobe reader.
