    maximizing windows
    On a windows based PC you just click the button at the top and it expands the window to the full size of the screen. When I press the green button at the top on my Macbook air it doesn't actually expand it all the way...how do I set this up?

    taskbar
    When you maximize a window in Windows XP, it covers up the entire desktop except for your taskbar

    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    Unfortunately OS X for what-ever reason does not support full screen natively, however OS X Lion is apparently going to have full support for this feature.

    Hope this helps

    Currently, the green button will expand a window sufficiently to display its content, and no larger. Only click it once!

    I found something called right click that seems to work.

    EDIT: right ZOOM
