This is a silly little issue, but it really bugs me! Whenever I open a file in Illustrator via double-clicking the file in Windows Explorer, Illustrator resizes its main window, as if I've hit the "Restore Down" button in the upper right corner. I then have to click "Restore Up" to expand it to fill the screen again. I'm using Illustrator CS3 and Windows XP. Any ideas?
Had (and still have) the same issue on CS5 and CS4 both on Windows 7. Earlier I had this also in CS3 in XP. The only way I found to correct this, is by trashing the setting file. This will help only for a short period as this strange behavior will come back after a while.
Been asking around about this issue before but until this post nobody reported this problem. This behavior is not a real problem, but it also bugs me. So if somebody have any idea how to correct this…..
I have got the same Problem on a PC Windows 7 Pro 64bit, Ai CS6. In CS5 it worked well. I try to set the "Start Option" for the Programm to "Full Screen" but when I open a new file the window downsizes again.
