I am really have interest on a solution to fix that.
Because it's annoying, every time i have to open this page overview pane ... every time ...
The old Acrobat can do it ... the DC can't ...
Does anyone know if this issue has been addressed? I'm currently still dealing with this issue and have found no luck on any forums.

The BEST ANSWER I have seen so far is at how can I keep tool pane and thumbnails open as a default? .
That response advises using
(1) F4 to get the "Page Thumbnails Pane" open or closed. After you have pressed F4 to open the Page Thumbnails Pane,
(2) ALSO click EDIT, PREFERENCES, DOCUMENTS and CHECK the box beside "Restore last view settings when reopening documents". Click OK / Apply to save the check box change.
(3) Then be sure you SAVE the current file you have F4'ed your preferred view.
In my case, I ALWAYS need Page Thumbnails open for the files I update. I hope this helps you as much as it did me.

Acrobat & Reader January updates for DC Continuous (Build # 2015.023.20053), DC Classic (Build # 2015.006.30279) and 11.0.19 are now live.
In this Update we support keeping any Navigation pane pinned, i.e. to open by default for all the documents in the LHP.
This is how you can try this out:
1) Launch any PDF and Expand the Panel that you want the acrobat to open by default for every document(For Ex. Page Thumbnails)
2) Right click on the LHP Navigation strip , Select the option from the context menu "Pin Page thumbnails" .
3) now try out by launching any other pdf -> You will observe that the Page thumbnails panel would appear expanded by default on launch(If document does not have any other document specific preference )
Refer here for more info on this What's new in Adobe Acrobat DC -> "Retain the last LHP state across Acrobat launches"
Let me know for any other Ask in this.
I have adobe acrobat pro DC and when I right click on the LHP I don't get the option to "Pin Page Thumbnails". I have checked to see if I have the latest updates and it appears I do. I only see "Reset Panes" and "Hide Navigation Pane Buttons" as options.
Is this option only in certain versions of Acrobat?
when in acrobat with a file open go to the icon thumbnails on the left hand side
hold down the control button and then select the icon
you would have then triggered the drop down and on that you will see the PIN option
nicely hidden as always :-)
I was hoping that it would be that easy (using the control key to get the menu) but no such luck. PIN is not an option in that menu either. I have Acrobat Pro DC 2015 Release (Classic) Version 2015.006.30280. And when I check for updates I am told no updates available.

2015 Pro DC version 2015.023.20056
F4 or View / ShowHide / Navigation panel / page thumbnails or View / ShowHide / Navigation panel / Show Navigational pane
this will bring out on the left hand side a side panel that should have four icons
then control click the icon for the page thumbnails
I would suggest to then write adobe regarding this and to see if they can help out
Sorry, but you appear to be wrong, Ayush. DC Pro Classic track has NOT received that update yet. That's only available for Continuous track as of Build # 2015.006.30269. The link you provided shows that feature as limited to the Continuous Track so far. Eventually the Classic track users like myself will get that new feature.
All ... note that a PDF with a specific "Initial View" setting takes priority over your preference. Your preference only applies if the PDF author did not specify the Initial View. I always specify "Bookmarks Panel and Page" for any page with bookmarks (most of ours have them).
What is LHP? I tried to follow this instruction but could not find what a LHP Navigation Strip is. Please help and if possible, attach a screenshot. Thanks.
LHP = Left Hand Panel
(IAHAIDNU, or in other words: I also hate abbreviations I do not understand ;-) )
I think "LHP" is personal shorthand for "left hand panel" - also known as the Navigation Pane. You can toggle the display of the Navigation Pane by pressing F4 (in Windows).
Aah Finally! thnx a lot!
Have there been any updates to this since your post? We are on Adobe Standard DC (Classic) version 2015.006.30394 and I have spent hours trying to figuring out how to get the LHP to open automatically on all documents without my users having to hit F4. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
