    Pdfs open in half window using Reader app

    Learning curve has really been difficult.

    When I open a .pdf it uses the Reader app. I have no problem with that except when I am on a website it opens the pdf in a new half window. Meaning the original site and the .pdf each are in their own side by side window. Yes I can drag it to full but everything I read said it should open full. Or at least that's how I would like it.

    I have not found any settings to make it always open full. I should say that if I just open the Reader app on its own it does open full screen.

    Best thing is to use an ad-on to the browser to open PDF in it. That Win8 App is really flaky stuff.

Possible to set apps to open half of screen by default?
Would really like for windows apps to open 50% view by default instead of forcing me to manually do this each time. Is it possible? Thanks Edit: I'm talking about Metro apps, not everyday 3rd party programs that run on desktop version.

Windows 8 Start Menu - Open it at half the size?
One of the biggest complaints about the Windows 8 start menu/screen, is the fact that it takes up the whole screen, unnecessarily blocking everything a desktop user is currently working on. I've been playing around with Windows 8.1 Preview, and am getting used to snapping the start screen to the...
