I like to read eBooks, but I tend to have a hard time keeping track on which page I am in which file. Is there a bookmark function or something similar that I'm not aware of?

In Adobe Reader:

Edit → Preferences... (Ctrl+K)

In Documents category check the first option:

Restore last view settings when reopening documents

Click OK

This works in 8, 9, 10, 11, and Acrobat Reader DC.

For Foxit Reader:

File → Preferences...

In History category check the option:

Restore last view settings when reopening

Click OK

    Unfortunately, while it may perhaps work in the versions mentioned, it does nothing in version 11, so I moved from Adobe to Foxit where it works just fine.

    @prl77, it worked just fine for me in 11.

    +1 This works in Acrobat DC too. You might have to scroll down so that you can find the OK/Save button. Thanks a lot!

  • @Sanoo well for me it's not working in DC. I re-installed it but still not working as expected. Feb 8 '18 at 16:26
