I have a MS Access application for finding a specified PDF file and displaying it on the screen by using the command line options for Adobe reader.
It works well except that Adobe reader always comes up minimized at the bottom of the screen and I have to click on it to maximize.  
How can I get it to automatically display in maximized mode?
