If you’ve come from another operating system like Linux or Windows you may have noticed that there is no real maximize button on OSX windows. The green plus symbol button is called “Zoom” and tries to resize the window to fit the content. Unfortunately this doesn’t always work well and if you’re used to other GUI’s you might be expecting more of a traditional maximize button.
This is where a program called Right Zoom comes into play. It changes your green + (zoom) button into a traditional maximize button. It’s simple, free and does exactly what I want.
