    For some unknown reason excel, reader and a few other apps do not utilize the screen estate well and every time I have to click the green plus button the maximise the window. Is there a keyboard shortcut to do this?

    There's not a default, but you can create one.

    Go to  menu > System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts

    Select App Shortcuts

    Press the [+] key at the bottom

    Application: All Applications

    Menu Title: Zoom Window

    Keyboard Shortcut: Whatever you want to use (I tested with Shift-Option-Command-Z for example, should be something not used for other purposes)
