comment Adobe Reader DC, remove sidebar
I looked for reference docs on the Viewer.aapp file, thinking an increase in elegance of this approach would be to add something like <state = "collapsed"> to <Layout> element. I failed, but did locate DC Tools Customization which describes related Windows registry entries and might eventually lead to something else closer to what we're after.

@KevinThibedeau, note the less destructive method here superuser.com/a/918966/16966, no file deletion or loss of functionality needed.

comment Difference between OTF (Open Type) or TTF (True Type) font formats?
The graphic is interesting, but to the inexperienced (like me) doesn't immediately support the claim TTF has better hinting. Actually it looks like the opposite, as the OTF row, on the right side, appears to have 4+ times the resolution and take advantage of partial shading. Please expand.

+1, to counter the down votes. There is nothing wrong with this advice. It's practical and true (notwithstanding the other answers, which are also true. Pick what suits your circumstance.)

Thanks Ray. Hopefully this helps someone. I don't have this computer or situation anymore so can't evaluate or rate your answer in context of my question.
