    Tools no longer appears with my PDF documents

      The tools window stopped showing up when I open PDF documents.  How do I fix this?

          Which version of Adobe Acrobat are you using? (DC, XI, X).

           

          Here's a couple of things to try (for Adobe Acrobat DC):

          • Press F8 to Show or Hide the Toolbar at the top of the document window.
          • To reset the Toolbars to their default press Alt/Option+F8
          • Press Shift+F4 to Show or Hide the Tools pane on the right side of the document window).
          • To access all of the different tools, and manage them display the Tools centre (normally you'd click on Tools at the top of the document window to display these) choose Edit > Manage Tools.  From here you can open different tool sets or add a toolset to the Tools pane for easy access.

           

          If all of this fails, try restoring the preferences for Acrobat DC:
