I hide my dock. How do I acheive this: double click on titlebar to maximize a window to fill up screen?

Please pay attention to two red rectangles (not fill up the screen though I double click on titlebar) as shown below a screenshot of the entire screen.

This post How to maximise a window to fill up screen in Mavericks? proposes to use SizeUp (PS: it is not free?) by assigning a new shortcut. Is it still possible to use double click?

  • @tubedogg, I refer to this post in my updated question. – SparkAndShine Sep 2 '16 at 17:04
  • In your post you said "Please pay attention to two red rectangles as shown below a screenshot of the entire screen.", so exactly why are we supposed to be paying attention to the red rectangles? – user3439894 Sep 2 '16 at 17:08
  • @user3439894, thx, just updated my question. The two red rectangles indicate that the app does not fill up the screen though I double click on titlebar. – SparkAndShine Sep 2 '16 at 17:11

BetterSnapTool has the option that you're requesting. (The drop-down has many options including maximize.) You can also change the behavior of the green zoom button to do this as well.

  • @sparkandshine No, but if you purchase a license for BetterTouchTool, you get a free license for BetterSnapTool (and most of its functionality has been integrated into BTT anyway), and BTT has a pay-what-you-want model that starts at $4.50. – tubedogg Oct 10 '16 at 19:45
