Maximixe Google Chrome on a Mac

So today I was playing with Google Chrome on my mac and have decided to make it my default browser for "Browsing the Internet". I say that because I will still use Firefox as my main browser for "Development Debugging" and of course like any other web developer I am forced to continue to support IE 6+, so for that I use Parallels and test on my VM.

Anyways, enough for the introduction to this post. Basically one thing I did not like about Google Chrome was that I could not maximize the window to my full screen size, well at least until now. I first tried using the default Mac option of clicking the green button on the window with the option key held down but that didn't work. All that did was maximize the window to the content within. So what is the answer you may ask?

Shift+Green Button

Yeap that is it, that will maximize your window to your full screen size. If this post was useful, let me know by leaving me a comment below.

  1. Worked a treat. And if you hold down the shift and hit the yellow button it syphons down to the toolbar thingy! I learn something every day!!
