Preferences > Accessibility > Overrride Page Display. Set the "Always Use Zoom Setting" to what you desire them to open to.

Thank you, but that will still cause the window to be resized if it isn't large enough to display a document at the zoom setting that I select.

You might also want to unchcek "Restore last view settings when reopening documents" in Preferences > Documents >.  Other than that, I don't know of any way to change the applications window size.

However, If this is for a specific document, then you should set your Initial View settings within the Document Properties of that file... in particular, set the Zoom size you want, but uncheck Resize Window to Initial View.

These attributes only affect viewing in Acrobat, of course, and may not have any bearing on 3rd party viewers.

Thank you!  I will give that a try.

Unfortunately, this is regarding thousands of docs, mostly computer generated, and I have no control over the settings under which they are generated so I will frequently get one that is in eleventy billion DPI with a printable size of 6 feet by 8 feet—that's an extreme case, but lots of other scenarios where weird document sizes will mess with a window that I generally need to stay in the same place at the same size AT ALL TIMES...

Compound that with the fact that Adobe apparently needs a bitcoin farming rig to actually resize a window in real time, and it's a supreme headache.

No dice on unchecking "restore last view settings".

Miserable usability issues caused by this completely unwanted and pointless behavior.
