Right Zoom utility is created for people who don't like a default behaviour of green Zoom button in Mac OS X programs. This small program changes its behaviour, so a green button will always maximize your windows to all available screen space instead of inconvenient resizing. You will also be able to maximize the active window with Command + Option + E keys (can be customised).

The program changes a behaviour of most annoying examples of inconvenient zoom button behaviour (Finder, Safari, MS Office, Pages etc). You can easily extend this list with your own applications.

You can customise it to expand the windows more...

When I try to open it to install it it says "RightZoom" can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.

MagdaC1369, here's how to get around that problem….

- Right-click (Control-click) on the application's icon.
- Select Open from the contextual menu.
- In the next dialog which appears, click Open.

The application will open, and you will not have any further problems opening the application in the future--the application will open normally.

Why thank you. However when I closed it it won't open again. I've probably done something wrong. I give up

Yes there is a problem with Adobe apps but it should be fixed from Adobe side. That's problem is very old and is described in right zoom readme. Just use Exclusions.

We installed Right Zoom on several iMacs running 10.7 with Acrobat Pro (CS4) installed. Acrobat slowed to less than a crawl. Upon deleting Right Zoom, problem vanished.

I love Apple and I love Mac's. On my 21.5'' I Mac I have never been able to totally expand my window to the entire desk top until now. Have no idea why apple designed it that way as all other pc's already utilize the entire screen. This had been my only complaint with I Mac in the past, but is now resolved and is the perfect computer. This is a must have application for your Mac.

Works as advertised and does something useful. My only complaint is that I think I'd prefer this as a preference panel.

Yeah, it should definitely be a preference panel.
