This is easy for popups coold you clarify what you mean by 'automatic (without link)'.
 For the users window opening your link you should not be fooling around with their browser window and this site (in my opinion) should not be giving advice on how to do it.

i want to hide the scroll bars and the rest on opening of my website as i do not want the design to be distracted by it. scrollbars and menubar reduce effectife screen size and would hide part of design.

You'd have to open a new browser window to do that. you could use this:

window.open ("http://my_url", "title", 'WIDTH=800 HEIGHT=600,left='+(screen.width/2 - 800/2)+',top='+(screen.height/2 - 600/2)+',scrollbars=0');

This will create a new window 800x600, centered and without scrollbars.

Of course the centering works only for IE, for netscape(mozilla) you need to use "screenY" and "screenX" instead of left and top.

THanks for the points! I would of added the netscape check, but I didn't know this was the way you wanted to go.

I usually write this in a function that checks for the browser like so:

function openWindow (my_url, title){
      if (navigator.appName.toLowerCase() == "navigator"){
            window.open (my_url, title, 'WIDTH=800,HEIGHT=600,screenY='+(screen.width/2 - 800/2)+',screenX='+(screen.height/2 - 600/2)+',scrollbars=0');
      } else {
            window.open (my_url, title, 'WIDTH=800,HEIGHT=600,left='+(screen.width/2 - 800/2)+',top='+(screen.height/2 -600/2)+',scrollbars=0');
      }
}

then call it like so:

openWindow("http://myURl","myTitle");

This way you can reuse the code.
