See how the Adobe Acrobat interface makes it easy to access files and tools across desktop, web, and mobile using a consistent Home view experience.
Access files in the Home view
The Home view appears when you select the Home tab or don’t have a PDF file opened in Acrobat.
- In the left pane, you can access multiple file lists, including Recent, Scans, My Computer, and files Shared For Viewing, For Review, and For Signature.
- In the center of the user interface, you’ll see to-do cards to track pending actions for documents shared with you.
- At top right, you’ll find a search box, learn and support link, and notifications bell for file activity alerts.
Open tools in the Tools center
The Tools center is the go-to place to use and discover tools available in Acrobat. When you have a PDF document open and choose a tool, tool-specific commands or a toolbar appears in the document view. If you don’t have a file open and choose a tool, you will be prompted to select a file.
Customize your tool shortcuts
The right pane provides tool shortcuts for quick access to frequently used tools. To add a shortcut, open the Tools center and click the Add button below the desired tool name.
