How to make Adobe DC Reader default to scrolling?

PDF files are now more popular than ever, and with just about any web browser supporting them, there’s not much need for any third-party software to open or access them. However, many users still prefer Adobe’s Acrobat DC and Reader DC software to work with PDFs, thanks to their additional features. 

However, all those additional features can sometimes get in your way. For example, switching to your preferred page mode in either of the programs can often disable continuous scrolling, which is not the best of situations when you’re editing or reviewing a 100 page PDF document. 

In this article, we’re looking at how you can enable scrolling in Adobe Acrobat by default.
