Option for default zoom at 200% when opening images in Photoshop, for those who have 4k display

Hello!
​Is there, by any chance, a way of automatically zoom to 200% an image in Photoshop immediately after it was opened, or at least, can we plug a script to make that? Or can we add an option for default zoom at 200% when opening images in Photoshop? This will be very useful for people who have 4k displays and open tens of banners at once, because this will get us rid of the problem of taking any document we just opened and manually zoom it to 200%.
​Thanks in advance and have a Happy New Year! :)

You can assign custom action or script in "Script event manager" there should be event something like "document open"

You can record action and while recording you can use "insert menu item" feature. So you pick from menu "view > 200%"

Hi Jaroslav,
Yes, I did that, I recorded an action to automatically zoom to 200% all opened images once I summon that particular action, but this just feels unnatural, plus, sometimes this causes some glitches and delays, when this could be solved easily by simply adding this option in the application as a native function :)

You can turn-off zoom animation in app settings. It should reduce delay.

I did, but when you open 30-40 files, this happens when you use workarounds :)
So is there a chance to have this simple but yet very useful option implemented in the following updates of PS?

If you can get 50-100 people who want it. It can be added in 3 years. This is how Adobe works.

Anyway script event manager works on event basis. So it trigger action right after any document open. So it always process only one document and delay is shorter.

I see. But I`m not a programmer :)
Is there a kind programmer around to upload this script to zoom to 200% at event open?
I think many will benefit from that (pro bono work) until we will have something native in the PS.

Please read up on Photoshop’s Script Events Manager or just try it already (File > Scripts > Script Events Manager).

It worked with Script event manager with the event Open Document, then action to view 200%. For now this is a nice workaround.
Thank you so much, you people are awesome!!! :)
