Is there a group of files or a single file I can edit to facilitate maximizing "Finder" windows to fill the entire screen just as other application windows by shift-clicking the green plus button?

  • I don't know about any specific file to edit but I can highly recommend Better Snap Tool ($1.99). It's by far my preferred solution for application window manipulation. – Hoshts Mar 16 '14 at 9:03

Try to use an application like Slate, Amethyst, ShiftIt, or Spectacle instead.

If you use Slate, for example adding

bind m:alt move screenOriginX;screenOriginY screenSizeX;screenSizeY

to ~/.slate makes option-m maximize a window.
