You can't procedurally do anything before an estate is opened (whether by someone else or by you), since the only way to get a copy of the will is by filing a legal action for it, but a legal action requires that a case by opened--courts have no jurisdiction (power) without an open legal case, such as a probate case. So at present, with not estate being opened and no legal action being brought to open an estate, there is no way to invoke the court's power and get an order that the will be shown to you.
