    Option-clicking the green zoom button is significantly easier.

    “This is the easiest way to make a window literally take up the entire screen, without losing its underlying functionality as a window.”

    “Magnet” is a great app for maximizing screen on Mac. It is not free but pretty good value too me because I use it every day.

    Keyboard sequence to make full screen on Mac.
    Ctrl Logo F
    Use the same keyboard sequence to exit full screen.

    Does anyone on the internet ever bother reading the articles? Everyone is talking about full screen applications, but the article is talking about full screening windows. There is a difference.

    What I want is to have the MENU and DOCK always available AND the remaining screen as big as possible. Like it used to be before the “features.”

    Any hints?

    I like Magnet too.

    Hold alt and double click any corner of the window will maximize it completely.

    I’m a convert to macOS of about 2 full years now after having spent decades in Linux and Windoze. I consider window management one of a few areas where macOS is deficient, overly complex, and kludgy. I’m very thankful for the Magnet app which restores sanity to window use under macOS. I remain puzzled why macOS has such strange ideas about when people want to do with windows such that almost anyone familiar with other popular Oses finds it frustrating and requires an add-on to get by.

    Hold down the OPTION / ALT key on the Mac keyboard and double click one of the corners of the window will maximize it.

    I have been using my apps full screen since OS X Lion. It works best when using a trackpad since we can use a multitouch gesture to slide between full screen apps.
