How to make Adobe PDF reader to go to the last open page on reopening a document

If you use Adobe Acrobat Reader to read PDF documents, one of its annoying features is that it does not remember the last page read. If you are reading a long document like a book and close the document, you will be welcomed with the first page of the document the next time you open the document. One day when wading through the options available in Adobe Reader, I found a setting hidden deep inside the settings page that would allow us to reopen a document to the last viewed page. I have been using this setting for a very long time and found it to be very useful for long PDFs.

This setting is available in Preferences -> Document -> Restore Last view settings. To quickly go to settings page, Press CTRL + K inside Adobe Acrobat Reader or follow the menu as shown in the screenshots below.

Here is how you access the preferences page on the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 10.
