[pdftex] [SOT] pdf in full screen mode on multiple screens

While this is not exactly pdftex question, it is a pdf question and
failing to find an answer in comp.text.pdf and other pdf forum
archives I hope to find it here.

beamer allows creation of two-screens pdf which actually have normal
height and double width. Using two monitors hooked to one computer one
can stretch such page to cover both screens but going to full-screen
mode such page shrinks to one page (leaving black upper and lower
strips. There are reports that some people managed to force such page
occupy completely two screens but only on Linux. However our
two-data-projectors seminar room has Windows XP Pro resident computer.

So, my question is: how to force Adobe Reader in full screen mode
occupy both screens under Windows (and under MacOSX)

Another (alternative) question: is there a way to send "Go to the next
page" command simultaneously to all open pdf files?

Thank you in advance.
