Lion's Terminal.app does support fullscreen mode. Maybe you are overlooking it? How did you upgrade? As for TextEdit, applications need to explicitely implement Lion fullscreen support, and this has not been done for TextEdit. There are other 3rd party text editors that have implemented fullscreen mode, depending on what usage you have for a text-editor.

Yes. Just leave the app in full screen mode when you quit the application. As long as it's using Lion's full screen library (and not some hack of its own), the next time you start the app it will start back up in full screen mode. Just tested this with Safari and Sparrow and they both restarted in full screen mode. Chrome 15.0.874.106, however, did not. I ...

I love Divvy - it's something that I feel OSX needs and that would allow you to set a shortcut for it. Otherwise the green orb on the top left will take you to full height, and then you can drag out horizontally to your chosen width. Alternatively, should you upgrade to Lion, Chrome has a full-screen mode which hides all the other apps.

The built in full screen (Lion) dominates both screens - and I've not been able to find any setting which lets me use the other one for anything else. The fix I use for this is Divvy - which enables me to maximise on each screen - but this isn't quite full screen and doesn't provide entirely the same experience. It is, however, a good compromise.

Make sure you have "Allow Exposé, Dashboard and others to use the screen" in keynote preferences under Slideshow. Then before you slide over to Safari press the "F" key to pause the slideshow, this prevents the slideshow from dissapearing. You can then slideover, or use Mission Control, etc without affecting the slideshow. There is a bug here, to go ...

Terminals have a fixed character width and height, and most (all?) terminal application programs make the window an even multiple of that size (then add the window title, some margin around the sides, etc.), so there will never be a partial row or column visible. They could theoretically add more margin at the right/bottom of the window when the window is ...

Here it is: /usr/bin/osascript -e 'tell application "Safari"' -e "activate" -e 'tell application "System Events"' -e 'keystroke "f" using {control down, command down}' -e "end tell" -e "end tell" Here it is in a clearer form (but you can't run it this way): /usr/bin/osascript -e "tell application \"Safari\"" -e "activate" -e "tell application ...

This is a known issue and the author doesn't plan to fix it. I encourage someone to go further and implement it because personally I don't use fullscreen apps right now and I don't plan to fix this anytime soon. Luckily, there is a workaround described by vvlad. As an workaround you can set LSUIElement in Terminal's Info.plist It has several ...

At the moment this isn't possible. You can only have one full screen application running at a time when using full screen mode, irrelevant of how many monitors you have. With Lion you could only have the full screen application on the primary display and with Mountain Lion it was changed to allow the full screen up on any of the monitors connected to your ...

Terminal does support Full Screen on Mac OS X Lion. It sounds like you’re opening an older version of Terminal. Check Terminal > About Terminal to see what version you’re using. It should be 2.2 or later. You can see the location of the Terminal you’re using by Command-Clicking on the Terminal icon in the Dock. That will reveal the Terminal application in ...

You can't set it to go back to the last Desktop you were in, but you can set it to go to a specific Desktop when you exit full screen. Just move the application in windowed mode to the desktop you want, right-click the app in the Dock and set to "This Desktop". Whenever you come out of full screen, it will always go into windowed mode in that particular ...

Selecting happens when you start dragging in the empty part of a line and have a major vertical movement. You can prevent message moving from happening by immediately starting to drag across after clicking. Moving happens when you start in the text part of a line. Moving is also easier invoked when your major movement is in the horizontal axis. If you click ...

It is very unlikely that Apple will ever support this request officially, as it would go against their whole "full-screen" philosophy. However, it ought to be possible to create a SIMBL hack which achieves it. If you do want the dock visible when using an app - perhaps the best solution is not to use fullscreen, but simply make the app window large by using ...

Disabling the animation This part of your question has been covered earlier. Unfortunately without success of finding a fitting answer. Unfortunately (at least as of 10.7.1) there does not appear to be a way to change any settings related to this animation. I filled a bug for this with Apple. The Radar number is 10073864. I would encourage you ...

Open console (⌥⌘C or Develop > Show Error Console), paste this code: (function() { var el = document.createElement('div'), docEl = document.documentElement; el.innerText = 'Go to fullscreen view'; el.setAttribute('style', 'position: fixed; top: 10%; left: 10%; padding: 30%; background: #000; color: #fff; opacity: .7; cursor: pointer;') ...

When you say "full screen", I'm assuming you're referring to the full screen button on the top right of a window, as opposed to the "expand" green button on the top left of a window. Mavericks has "solved" the multi-monitor issue by allowing multiple and independent spaces on each monitor. In pre-Mavericks, when you move to a different space on one ...

I'm afraid that's not possible. Since all major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari) all use the native Fullscreen API, you're stuck with the slow animation... I researched wether there were any work arounds or tricks but there doesn't seem to be. You're not alone in being annoyed. Only thing you can do is to use Flash when available, or, upgrade ...

You can use AppleScript to create a new message in a new, non-modal window, however, the window will be placed in one of your Desktop spaces, not in Mail's fullscreen space. You can save each of these as an application and access them through the Dock or the Script menu in the menu bar (enabled in AppleScript Editor's prefs). New Message tell application ...

Use iCloud’s Photo Stream feature. As you noticed, you can’t access an iOS camera device connected via USB from iPhoto in full screen mode (in fact, iPhoto will leave full screen mode when you connect such a device). Photo Stream however is available in full screen mode (in the “All Albums” section). You can even setup iPhoto to automatically import photos ...

[update] This has worked for me and others; it may take a couple attempts to get down. Open an app (Safari, for example) and enter full-screen mode. Next, you will need to start another app without using the mouse (i.e. via Spotlight w/keyboard shortcut) Command + Space When the Spotlight search box pops up start typing the name of the other app you would ...

ctrl+⌘+F works for Safari and Chrome. The ^ is old unix style for ctrl, which is why the option in the menu is: Edit: While the answer above only works for both Safari and Chrome, the following shortcut works only for Chrome and Firefox: ⇧+⌘+F

Real FullScreen applications will normally run on the Primary Display and they will rarely allow you to configure that. Some applications, however, are running in a “false” full screen, and are just “maximized” applications on top of everything, including the dock and the MenuBar. Some of the latter can be moved by applications like SizeUp and similar (note ...

I was having the same problem BUT i think i found out how to make google chrome always open full screen. go to the wrench on the right hand side of the task bar when you have chrome open. go to settings, under the on start up section click "continue where i left off." BAM google chrome should now open full screen... well it does for me anyways. hope this ...

You can't. Fullscreen Mode in Lion moves the given window to its own Space to be presented full-screen. Any other window created by the same application defaults to the Primary ("Desktop") Space. An obvious workaround while browsing in Safari is to open new pages in tabs rather than windows, but that doesn't apply to the Preferences (or any other app-) ...

Mac OS X doesn't resize windows like Windows when maximized. Logically, having a browser window take up an entire screen is very verrrrryyy inefficient, since you end up with the two blank spaces on both sides. OS X makes a window big enough to show the content, but no bigger as to prevent wasting of screen space. You can of course look for utilities to ...

I'd recommend not allocating any GUI elements until after the command line input is finished. If you run your app from a non-fullscreen Terminal, you'll probably notice that the app launches in the Dock (even if no windows appear) before you finish entering your command line stuff. This is probably what's causing the Space-switch.

You can simply do ⌃ → (default) to move one space to the right, which is where your app should be. You can change these settings in the Keyboard preferences: An alternate is to use Cmd-Tab to bring up the applications list and navigate.
