    I am just wondering how to remove space between full size window and dock while positioning the dock on the right or left. I could clearly see my wallpaper from the gap.......:confused::confused::confused:

    It doesn't have to be full screen to affect the window, it just has to be on the side of the screen. Restart the app and it's moved a few pixels. That is supremely annoying and one reason my dock is now on the left side of my screen and not on the bottom.

    I'm confused. I don't see what gap you're talking about.

    Dock on left:

    Dock on bottom:

    the space between the edge of the full window and the edge of the screen that the Dock is located on when i am using dock auto-hiding function. it is not a big gap but annoying :mad:

    pay attention to my picture right hand side see the gap? I can not even drap the window to cover the gap:confused::confused:

    i've never actually ran any of my macs in full screen, because I like how well everything fits when not maximized. But i do think its funny that your worried about a 2pixel line on the right side thats not covered. :)

    why do people need to see acres of nothing?

    I know that google screen shot is just an example but look how much space you are wasting by going full screen.

    OSX maximise screen only 'maximises' to the size you need.

    Full screen is a pet hate of mine (im slightly worried about 10.7).

    That's strange. I'm able to stretch mine past the edge of the screen, drag the window to the left, then stretch it even farther to the right. No gap at all.

    I'm sure with a few years of counseling, group therapy and heavy medication, you'll get over it! :D

    That only assumes that the content on the window is static. If you go from Google to some another content heavy page, you will need to "maximise" again, and again when you go to another site. It would be fine if OS X knew that you changed site and resized the browser to accomodate the content, but having to do it everytime is not the answer.

    Is there really no way around this on Mac?

    This is much more annoying if you hide your dock but still want it on the left/right sides.

    I second this thought.

    Not sure if anyone still has this problem, but..

    I believe it has something to do with the display perimeters. I had this problem twice and each time it fixed itself (as if by magic!). This time I realised it was from when I switched in between Airplay mode. People can try the same, or just perhaps play around with the display resolution and hope for the best
