0.4.1

Key command utility grows front window to full screen.

Overview

Note: megazoomer is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.

megazoomer brings full-screen windows to the Mac. Just press Command-Enter, and the front-most window grows to fill your entire monitor. Press the same keys, and it shrinks again. Only works for Cocoa apps.

What's new in megazoomer

Version 0.4.1:
  • more compatibility fixes - switching windows works in terminal while zoomed
  • megazoomer no longer prints warning messages on the console each time an app opens

I fixed up an Intel ready build of megazoomer. http://www.paperplanes.de/files/megazoomer.zip Can't say if it works on PPC machines (or 10.4 for that matter), but it should.

This current version is out of date and will not work with Snow Leopard. I tracked down a later version. Download it here: http://www.mediafire.com/?lonjelmnlvy

The actual version is 0.5. You'll get it on the developers side. It's Lions full screen mode for Panther till Snow Leopard. Works great. I love it.

I cannot access http://ianhenderson.org. Would someone give me an alternate download site for version 0.5 for Snow Leopard? Thank you!

If you don't mind installing SIMBL (I know some folks who'd rather not take the chance), then Megazoomer is a wonderful SIMBL plugin. Press Command-Enter to make the front-most window really full-screen, hiding the menubar as well. It works only with Cocoa apps. I did install the latest SIMBL, and then I installed Megazoomer (downloaded the latest version from the developer's Web site), and it works fine on my OS X 10.6.7. Finally I can see Scrivener's corkboard in actual full-screen. If you don't want to install SIMBL, though, but would like to dim the menubar, you should check out a great little app called Menu Eclipse. I got it from the Mac App Store, and I use it when I prefer to only dim the menubar instead of hiding it. If you're into distraction-free environment, also check out HazeOver: a relative newcomer, it elegantly highlights the foreground window, while dimming other windows in the background (kinda like a more veteran app called Isolator).

Awesome tool, finally Safari in fullscreen! I love it! I did not experience any bugs (Adobe Indesign doesn't work, but it doesn't need to work - it has a fullscreen feature inside). Thanks!

Doesn't work on Leopard! 10.5.1 on a 2.16 gHz Macbook with all the latest upgrades. Please make it work (if possible)! I miss it!

I would love it if I could press Command-Enter (on numerical keyboard) as well. I.e. not only Return key on the qwerty keuboard. Otherwise, nice application! Thanks!

This product is the main source of trouble for AppleScript Error... I hope the developer can resolve the problem as I like this program very much till it clashes with other programs.

This app COULD be cool if it hadn't so many bugs especially when using it in Safari. If you use this app and try to use tabs graphical glitches appear very, very often!:/
