[Tex/LaTex] Make PDF open in “Fill Window” mode with hyperref


When I usually open a PDF with Acrobat Reader it opens it in Fill Window mode (the page fills all the space of the window). When using the hyperref package it always opens the file in Full page mode (show a single page at a time and jumps from page to page when scrolling) and show the bookmarks.

How to make this effect disappear? I know there is an option of hyperref that forces the way a PDF file is opened but I forgot and are having trouble finding it again.

Thanks if you remember it or can find it easily and tell us.

\hypersetup{pdfstartview={XYZ null null 1.00}}

which instructs the pdf reader to use initial view zoom factor = 1.00, i.e., to open at zoom = 100%. Other pdfstartview= values include Fit, to show the whole page; FitH, to fit the width of the page in the window; or FitB, to fit the width of the contents to the window.
