You could use an AppleScript like that to do it. tell application "Safari" to activate delay 3 --adjust to your needs tell application "System Events" tell process "Safari" tell menu bar 1 tell menu bar item "View" tell menu "View" click menu item "Hide Toolbar" end tell ...
@Wladimir Palant has a great solution over at http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/157274/92712, using BetterTouchTool to reassign the role of the green button. Works for me! (Note: @Wladimir's answer actually solves this question, not the one he posted in)
I found that BetterTouchTool solves this problem nicely. The Preferences aren't quite intuitive: Select "Other" category at the top of the window. Make sure that "Global" is selected at the left side. Click "Configure New Trigger" button in the bottom part of the window. Select "Leftclick Green Window Button" as trigger. Select "Zoom Window Below Cursor" ...
I use TotalSpaces for this. It gives you an unlimited number of virtual desktops (each can be multi-monitor) and easy keyboard and visual navigation between them. It basically does gracefully what Mission Control fails to do (I've had Mission Control disabled for a long time thanks to TotalSpaces).
Hi not sure if I've misread the OP - but in Yosemite, to enter full screen mode you just click the green icon at the top left of the open window to make it full screen and click it again to reduce back to original size - as in cough Windows
Solved - I'd misread ^-CMD-F as SHIFT-CMD-F rather than CTRL-CMD-F
Here's my workaround: right click on the 1/4-screen video and, if you're using Flash 15.0.0.xxx, you should see a Stretching is <type> item in the options list. Click on that and the video will fill the screen. Keep repeating until you get back to the 'Stretching is none' setting, unless you prefer something else. I have the same issue when using ...
ShiftIt is a free app that does a similar job to some of the others mentioned here: CMD + ALT + CTRL + F gives you full-screen. It also does quarter screen, center, and move to next screen if you have multiple monitors. It requires XQuartz which does rather dwarf its <1Mb download. Hadn't come across Spectacle before; it may offer a more complete feature ...
Did you consider using Keyboard Maestro? Here you can see how I deal with something this. I use it to move cursor and windows between screens, but is really easy to modify per your requests.
I've already posted in a similar topic - Check out the free"spectacle" that has a bunch of handy window management shortcuts.. Running that app adds cmd+option+F for true full screen with status bar. PS. I really hate that instead of adding the "option" key for the current maximize to full screen behavior they just replaced the button that people used for ...
There's a free open source app called spectacle that has a bunch of handy window management shortcuts. For full screen, press: cmd + option + F It also has a bunch of options for 1/2 screen, 1/3 screen, top half, bottom half, etc.
The menu bar appears when you hold the cursor at the top. On the right of that bar, there is a blue sign of a rectangle with arrows pointing in, which does the job. I checked further: that happens only in the Mathematica software, which I use. CMD CTRL F seems to work in general.
Use Option + Shift + Click green button to get the old fill screen behavior of expand to fill the whole screen. Use Option + Click green button to get the old green button behavior to just expand vertically. This was also driving me nuts today since every time that I change my KVM switch to my other machine, I end up with OS X resizing all of my windows! ...
Disable option "Double-click a window's title bar to minimize" in Settings -> Dock. Now you can use double click on the window's title to maximize it.
Push the mouse cursor up to the top of the screen and the 'traffic light' buttons will reappear and allow you to leave full screen. I know, completely intuitive.... Escape key also works for me.
