Answers / Acrobat Reader
On the right side of the screen, Adobe Reader XI has a pane that I can't close or minimize. The pane has the following items:Sign InExport PDFCreate PDFSend FilesStore FilesI don't ever intend to do any of these things, and it's very annoying that I can't get rid of this pane.I have to zoom to 140% to be able to read documents, and this pane overlays part of the right side of the document.

This is the "Tools" Pane. When you click on the "Tools" button right above it, it should get hidden. You should also see a "Sign" and "Comment" button and potentially an "Extended" button. These buttons allow you to show and hide these panes.

Thank you thank you thank you! That side pane was driving me crazy and I couldn't figure out how to close it. Your answer was succinct and to the point and appreciated more than you can imagine!

Michael, please post a new question with more information (e.g. what version of Acrobat, which side panel exactly - left side or right side, and anything else you can think of that might help us to help you).
