Get The Old Zoom Button Back In Yosemite With An Option-Click

Yosemite swapped out the old green “zoom” button with a new full-screen mode button. If you miss the old zoom function, you can get it back with an Option-Click.

All you need to do to get back the zoom function is hover over the green full-screen button, tap the Option key and click. Your window will zoom just like it used to.

  • FYI – You can also double click the toolbar of an app to make it ‘zoom’ (old green behaviour).

    Just make sure in ‘System Preferences > General’ that you haven’t turned on the option to minimize with the double click.

    Still no way to permanently change + behaviour, but I find the double click works well as alternative 🙂
