Adobe PDF File: Open showing bookmarks as default

A user asked the following question:

If there are bookmarks set up in a PDF, is there a way to set up the document so when someone opens the document it will have the bookmarks automatically showing, rather than having to click on “bookmarks” to have the list appear?

Here is how you do it:

1. Open the PDF file and then go to
2. File > Preferences… > Initial View
3. Change the “Navigation Tab” option to “Bookmarks Panel and Page”
4. Save and close
5. Open again to test
