Review: Change the function of the green zoom button with Right Zoom

Turn the green zoom window button into a true maximize feature using Right Zoom for Mac.

Right Zoom for Mac addresses the annoying problem of the Mac's green zoom window button. Rather than simply maximizing the window to fit the screen, users still must click the lower right corner and drag the window larger. This application changes the default button functions, making it a true maximize feature.

The freeware program works in the background to change the default functions. After downloading quickly, the program brings up a preferences menu. This allows for Right Zoom for Mac to be activated at all times, or when an additional hot key is pressed. There are a number of different key options and combinations available. An additional menu, easily accessible from the top of the window, allows for the program to be activated for only certain applications. These include office suites, the finder, and Web browsers, among many others. Users can also set the program to operate in all applications, except certain designated ones. After being initiated, the program works as advertised. The only downside is the advertisement that displays along the main menu's bottom, but this is not much of an issue for the freeware program.

For those who want a true window maximizing feature on their computer, Right Zoom for Mac works well and is easy to set up.
