Is it possible to bring back simple window maximize button as it was before and when holding option to use split view?

  • I'm not completely sure what you asking for. You want application windows to take up the whole screen? Not like full screen mode?

  • You can disable Split View (I found this out today, quite by accident). System Preferences > Mission Control > Uncheck Displays have separate Spaces. As far as window maximizing, I don't know if it's possible to bring back the button, but you can double click the toolbar to maximize a window.

You cannot change that function of Full Screen button to, but there is simple workaround. Go to Keyboard Preference Pane > Shortcuts > App Shotcuts > + > All Applications, and Menu Title to Zoom/Maximise, choose a shortcut of your preference. Now you can use that shortcut to mimic the behaviour of "old" Maximise button.
