Witch - A keyboard solution for managing windows
Authored by: CarlRJ on Feb 22, '05 03:40:09AM

Hmm, the green (+) gumdrop in the windowbar in Cocoa is a maximize button, or am I missing something?

And, actually, I take advantage of the point that many apps have a "Zoom" menu option on their window menu: I set a keyboard shortcut (under Keyboard & Mouse in System Prefs) for all apps, to map cmd-shift-M to "Zoom". Makes me less nuts to be able to easily zoom/unzoom Terminal (etc.) windows.

This way I have cmd-M to minimize and cmd-shift-M to maximize. Cmd-shift-M collides with an entry MacJournal makes for the services menu, so I go into the Info.plist file for MacJournal and delete out the NSKeyEquivalent for "M" -- I wish apps had some way to put a question in the prefs, "do you want these hotkeys assigned?"

You can also use a zoom hot key in witch,
but zoom does not set the window to full display size.
It only goes on whats in the window and how you last sized the window.
It would be nice if this was actually included as an option
