Take charge of the maximize button in iTunes Apps
Unlike every other application, the default behavior when clicking the maximize button in iTunes switches the window to miniplayer view. This can be frustrating when you're actually trying to maximize the window view.

Unlike every other application, the default behavior when clicking the maximize button in iTunes switches the window to miniplayer view. This can be frustrating when you're actually trying to maximize the window view.

The window menu reveals the shortcut of Command+Control+Z to switch between minimized and maximized views (listed as 'Zoom' in the menu), but I've found Option+clicking the green maximize button has the same function.

[crarko adds: This behavior seems to change with each major revision to iTunes, and we've run similar hints for earlier versions. This hint talks about how to do this with iTunes 9, and the Option+click trick is mentioned in the comments there. A comment to this hint actually suggests the Command+Control+Z shortcut to use for this. I wonder if Apple got the idea from here. :)]

Take charge of the maximize button in iTunes

The hint to restore the normal resize button behavior in iTunes 9 (Make the green button maximize the iTunes 9.0.1 window) still works in iTunes 10.
