(from The Green Button in OS X window bars used to “maximize” windows to fit the Mac screen, but since OS X Yosemite the Green Button now sends windows or apps into full screen mode by default. This can be modified one-off by Option+Clicking the green maximize button, but a better solution for some users is to permanently modify the behavior of this button to work like it used to instead. To change the green button maximize behavior you will need to use BetterTouchTool, a free application for OS X that performs many other functions and neat tricks with the Mac trackpad and mouse, but for the purposes here we’re just using it to adjust window maximizing universally throughout OS X.

Agree. Why are they updating it EVERY DAY? Can they not just update it once a week or something?!

The MacUpdate URL downloads version 3.01, not 2.900

If you have a new fangled Macbook with the touchbar and you're a power user, you owe it to yourself to use BTT. I make shortcuts for my most used commands which may have otherwise been buried in a submenu or have a hot key combination that I never remember.

I was previously using Karibiner to make the [Home] and [End] keys on my Mac keyboard behave the way they do in Windows (go to the beginning and end of the current line). It worked but there were a lot of steps to configure it (I had to download extra settings and then pick the right ones) Better Touch Tool is far more intuitive. You just type the key combination you want to map and then the key combination you want to map it to, and you're done. And not only that... Better Touch Tool has settings for windows, mice, and the MacBook Pro touch bar. Better Touch Tool is a very well put together and flexible tool, developed by one of those computer fanatics who give so much back to the rest of us. There's a very generous 45 day free trial, after which I recommend you show your support by purchasing a very reasonably priced $20 lifetime license.

Version 2.717

Hey guys, BTT is telling me that 2.7.18 is available in the auto update, however I get a download error when trying to autoupdate this version is not listed on the hopepage as the latest version to download, nor, is it listed here. Was curious if this is a genuine version, or if something is going on? Thanks.

UPDATE: I just realized that BTT has two update options in it's menu. Alpha versions and regular stable versions. For whatever reason I didn't know this existed outside the preferences. Anyway, the 2.7.18 giving Update errors appears to be the latest alpha version. Sorry for the mix up.

This is a serious piece of software and one, along with the dev(s), who should get way more time in the spotlight! But hey, maybe they don't want that. Anyways, one of the best pieces of software out there and anyone using a trackpad or anything else for that matter can greatly benefit by owning this!

The Most Updated app for Mac :0) The dev is really serious !! I likely only use 2% of its possibilities and even then it's already a real helper. The setting up can be a bit complex but it seems he UI is getting an overhaul soon.. seeing screenshots on here. Truly a Top 5 Must-Have Mac utility.
