A couple years ago I was routinely using a certain key combo which would instantly expand a PDF's pages to fill the window (rather than having to click the button in the GUI). But I've forgotten how to do it. I've searched the "keyboard shortcuts" list - in the Adobe Reader Help - but no sign of any such shortcut. I'm currently using Adobe Reader 9.4.7.
Anyone know? Thanks.

Yeah, that's a good one for maximizing the whole application window. Problem is, it doesn't also stretch the document you're viewing - it leaves the document's zoom level unaffected (unless you've first used your mouse to click the "fill the window" button next to the zoom percentage field, which is what I'm trying to avoid having to do each time I call up a PDF). What I remember was a keyboard shortcut to just make the document fill the app window - without also maximizing the app window to full screen.
The good news is, I just stumbled onto the answer a few minutes ago myself, by trying different key combinations. Turns out, it's Ctrl-3. If a PDF's zoom level is currently set at, say, 50%, you can hit Ctrl-3 and the document will stretch to whatever zoom percentage will fill the app window's current size. If your Reader window is maximized and you hit Ctrl-3, your current 50% document might jump to something like 142%, whereas if the window is un-maximized, say, to about half your total screen area, the doc may only need to jump to 70.4% to fill that smaller window.
Well well. Happy joy!!
Thanks for the reply.

Acrobat and Adobe Reader respect most of the standard zoom shortcuts used by other Adobe software, but they're not all listed on the product help:
