Can I get the old OS X 10.9 Zoom function back in OS X 10.10?

    Since OS X 10.10 a click onto the green button in any application window invokes the full screen mode for this application (and turns my two other monitors black). Only when I Option-click onto the green button I get just the window zoomed (and my two other monitors' content remains visible).

    Is there a way to turn this behavior system-wide back to the OS X 10.9 behavior where a click onto the green button simply zoomed the window?

    I know that I can have this by clicking in the menu bar onto Window - Zoom (at least in most applications, I guess). However, I would like to have this also when clicking onto the green button, if possible. I also know that usually a double click onto the window title bar would zoom just the window. Unfortunately that collides with the Deskovery shading function that I use about hundred times a day. What I am probably looking for is a "defaults" write command that changes OS X general behavior insofar.

    To not have your other screens go blank you can also set that every display has its separate spaces!

    In my hands, the BetterTouchTool green button fix works for most every app except iTunes, which still insists on going full screen, and tries hard not to let you go back, until you quit BetterTouchTool.
    iTunes, always the Maverick!
