If you have a graphically rich PDF, you might want to set it to open in Full-Screen mode to reduce clutter and increase the document’s visual impact. This is particularly useful when preparing PDF (rather than, say, PowerPoint-based) presentations. This tip explains how to set your PDF documents to open in Full-Screen mode every time in Acrobat.
Using Adobe Acrobat:
- Select ‘Ctrl + D’ to go to the Document Properties menu. Alternatively you may click on the arrow button on the top right hand side of your PDF document. (A PDF must be open to use this second option).
- Select > Initial View.
- Tick the box ‘Open in Full Screen Mode’ to activate. Next time you open it, it will appear using the full screen.
