I almost never use Adobe, but I have either the current or a recent version on my machine.  There are typical menus and commands like control o, open still work. 

There are buttons you can do thing with that you can get to by tabbing around the window but there are also standard menus.

If you'd like to have Adobe Reader Version 9 from 2008 I archived it and it's installer is in the ZIP file on my Google Drive that link references.

If you attempt to download it, you will get a warning from Google that it's too large to virus scan.  The installer itself has been being virus scanned on all my computers it's been carried through since 2008.

When you run the installer if it detects a newer version of an Adobe reader product you will be prompted with two radio buttons during the install to pick Version 9 versus what you have, and definitely want Version 9 if you want the now ancient menu driven system.

It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
