Uncheck it if you must :). Then it will retain 'as launched/created' order.

There is a method: <meta name="viewport" content="minimal-ui”> (but it only works on iOS 7.1 - not on 7.0 nor 8.0) source: StackOverflow More details, from iOS 7.1 beta 2 change log and release notes: Safari Notes A property, minimal-ui, has been added for the viewport meta tag key that allows minimizing the top and bottom bars on the ...

Zoom function can now be performed much easier — by double-clicking window title. You don't need to precisely aim at the small green button anymore, which I believe is the reason it has been converted into full screen button by default.

In order to maximize the window so that it fills the visible window content, use: Option/Alt + Click on green icon In order to maximize the window both in width and height to the current desktop for applications like Google Chrome use: Option/Alt + Shift + Click on green icon You notice the change of behaviour of the button in the way it changes its ...

Hold option and left click the green button to have it maximize but not go to full screen.

Click the green button or press CMD, CTRL & F simultaneously. To resize window, simply double-click window bar.

Enter full screen mode, right-click anywhere around the address bar then click "Hide Toolbar" in the menu that appears. Although next time you enter full screen mode the toolbar comes back.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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;') ...

Shift-CMD-F is for presentation mode and will hide the tabs. You want full screen mode instead, so use Control-CMD-F. Tabs will show in full screen mode.

You can switch between spaces using ctrl + left right arrow keys, but this can be used with all spaces not just Xcode

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.

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 ...

There is actually a quite easy fix to this: Launch System Preferences. Select "Mission Control." Uncheck "Automatically rearrange spaces based on most recent use."

Another terminal like application is iterm2. It goes fullscreen and works extremely well!(a lot better than terminal) http://www.iterm2.com/#/section/home

Hold down control and you can resize it to take the whole screen (although it won't necessarily add another row or column of text).

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 ...

You can change the width of each page in full-screen Safari. Move your cursor all the way to either side of the 'window', until you see the normal window resize cursor. Click and drag in, and the 'window' will shrink horizontally. You can set a different width for each tab.

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 ...

This is a quite old question, but I stumbled on it looking for the same thing (although on ML). The script looks interesting, but it's a bit far-fetched for me, I was looking for something simpler and preferably without add-ons. This is what I found and works for me: in the hot corner's pref pane, hold Command, Option, Control and/or Shift after clicking a ...

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 ...

Here's an AppleScript that can do it. Pass true or false to switch mode. The script uses the value of AXFullScreen to determine whether the app is currently in full screen and will only switch if necessary. Toggle an application from full screen to non full screen (or the reverse). Parameters: 1: application name(ie, Chrome) 2: boolean (true/false). ...

As @patrix has suggested, it seems I'm only having this problem with Java processes. This answer over at StackOverflow seems to solve the problem

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 ...

The short answer is no. OS X, by default, does not have a method which allows you to contextually change between spaces, staying in the current application. From my experience, your best bet is likely to focus on tabs for your navigation, replacing (or augmenting) spaces. Safari tabs can be switched between with the keyboard using Command+Shift+{ and ...

What you are looking for is TotalSpaces. The new version has the ability to remove the delay completely. Working great so far.
