Hey,

I was wondering if there is any application that allows you to re-size your windows to full-screen easily? The + green sign doesn't really make it full screen depends on apps, even when you hold down alt with it.

I'm looking for something along the lines of:

1. Drag your window to the corner and switches it to full-screen (to whatever its appropriate resolution is) like Windows 7.

2. Click the + sign and makes it full screen.

I especially want this feature for Browsers. Chrome is the preference.

Thanks in advance

The green button is not a "maximize" or full-screen button. It's designed to resize a window to best accommodate the contents. What Mac OS X version are you running? Full-screen capability is in Lion and ML.

Check out SizeUp. It's free with a nag, or $13 without the nag (but you can get a nice discount if you use this code at checkout).

It's basically the same as the Aero Snap feature in Windows 7/8.

Canada, Eh?
BetterTouchTool is exactly what you're looking for. And it's free.

NO, if the OP is looking for just snapping windows, BetterSnapTool is wayyyy better. Found in MAS.


Same maker as BetterTouchTool

I'm using it and its great.

I know. I have both. I was providing the free option.
