Let's say I have a POWER POINT document named "trees" and I want to automatically open the seventh slide in it in the full-theater view (I mean the whole screen), which command line do I need to run? My Power Point is 2003

Seems like you need PowerPoint Viewer to do this.

According to this article, you can open a presentation to the seventh slide like so:

"c:\program files\microsoft office\office12\PPTVIEW.exe" /N7 "Presentation.pptx"

The path may vary depending on which version of Windows you're running. PowerPoint Viewer 2007 lets you view presentations created in PowerPoint 97 and later.
