Default Default Word Documents to Full Screen Reading

You can't. Full Screen Reading Mode is triggered only by opening a document
directly from an attachment (which many people do not do as a matter of
policy), and even then it is determined by a setting on the recipient's
system. You can suggest that the recipient select the desired view, but you
can't force anything without a macro, which is likely to be disabled or
ignored.

In Word 2007, edit %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Templates\Normal.dotm.
Click the Developer tab on the ribbon and click "Visual Basic".
In the Visual Basic editor, double-click ThisDocument under Normal | Microsoft Word Objects.
Paste in this macro:

Private Sub Document_Open()
Application.ActiveWindow.View.ReadingLayout = True
End Sub

File | Save Normal.
File | Close and Return to Microsoft Word.
