Ok gents, this is gettin a little frustrating, and its NOT your fault...! I can get full screen no problem. Thats been figured out and is not the issue. The issue is that once upon a time when I clicked on a PDF file that was featured say, on a woodworking site of a project, when I clicked on the PDF link it would download and open up right away. Right now, when I click on a PDF link, it downloads BUT it stays down in the task bar at bottom of the screen as a flashing Adobe logo, and will not open until I click that logo...make sense...?
This DOES NOT happen if I open a PDF file thats sittin on my desktop. It opens up right away and is ready to read/scroll/enlarge/reduce, whatever I wish. Could this be something to do with IE8 settings...?
I hope this time I am making myself more clear, as I hate to waste a chaps time chasing gremlins that may in fact be my own cockups...simple or otherwise...!!!
