when opening an image bigger than the viewing area, the image should be zoomed to fit the viewing area. Right now, in CS6 and every other version of Photoshop, it opens the image with alot of blank space around it.

If the image is larger than the available space, it is zoomed out when opening.

If the image is smaller, then it is opened at 100%, otherwise it would appear fuzzy and be misleading. And thus it would open with "a lot of blank space".

Apperantly my wording didn't describe it properly and I apologize for that, here are some images to describe what I'm talking about. the first image is Photoshop CS6 (and all other versions have the same behavior) after just opening the image, the second one I had only pressed control+0 to make it fully take up all space available (that's what I was trying to ask the Photoshop team to implement)

That image btw is 1024 x1024, which is larger than my screen height, so it's not 100%

Basically, I'm asking Adobe to automatically press Control+0 each time a document is opened.

You can already control this with the Script Events Manager:

So... I have to learn a scripting language, simply to replace should-be default functionality? what about less tech savvy users? someone could literally make the code change during a coffee break.

Did you read the steps in the link? There's no scripting involved.

Create an action and record.

Choose "Insert Menu Item" from the Actions panel menu

choose View>Fit On Screen...

Stop recording.

Choose File>Scripts>Script Events Manager...

Check the Enable Events to Run Scripts/Actions...

Choose "Open Document" from 'Photoshop Event' pop-up

Click the radio button for 'Action' and choose the action you recorded from the pop-ups

Click [Add] then click [Done]

You're all set.
