Topic: How to start Acrobat with all toolbars disabled?

Hi all - I'm new to the forum, and new to using Acrobat. I have a simple issue: I'm using the Reader at my work, where I want users to only be able to view a PDF, but not be able to access any of the toolbars.

I have Reader 5.0. My goal is that when you click on a PDF to open it, the Reader opens wihtout the toolbar, menu bar, bookmarks, or thumbnails showing (i.e. you only see the PDF in the window; not the Adobe buttons.)

Is there a simple way to do this? Do I need to configure Reader a certain way to apply this to all PDF's, or is there a registry setting to have all toolbars hidden?

Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you!
