    Hello!

    I am wondering how it is possible to make a window like safari or Mail, fit to the desktop resolution, double click is putting in dock but is there a shortcut to fit the screen at full resolution ?
    I mean a zoom that fits proportionnaly to the full screen ...

    thanks!

    This was the only thing that really confused me when I switched from pc to mac. There IS NO 'fit to screen' button. It doesn't exist. Apple believes in utilizing your screen as efficiently as possible and because of this uses the 'zoom' button instead. The zoom button simply re-sizes teh windown to its optimum size for viewing. If the content is larger than your screen, than it will go full window, but other than that it is simply 'zooming'.

    Good luck!

    javascript:self.moveTo(0,0);self.resizeTo(screen.availWidth,screen.availHeight)

    if you make that a bookmark in your bookmark bar in safari, that should do the trick :)
