In Acrobat Pro, I try to set preferences (open in "page-width" view and use "one-page continuous) but it only makes changes for the document I have open, not as default for every time I open.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that to change the default for the "Single Page Continuous" (or one-page continuous)

  1. In the Preferences dialog box under Categories, select Page Display.
  2. Open the Page Layout menu and choose Single Page Continuous

What are you trying to do, create PDFs? Edit PDFs...?

Note: The PDF opens with the page layout specified in Preferences unless a different page layout is specified in Document Properties (File > Properties > Initial View). The Document Properties setting overrides the Preferences setting. If using Document Properties, be sure to save and close the document for the change to take effect. Acrobat users can change the initial view, unless security settings prevent changes. Reader users cannot change the initial view.

BTW, welcome to SuperUser When you get a chance, read the FAQs

Too bad there is no way to ignore Initial View for all documents. –  mlt Jun 4 at 20:10
