Right Zoom for Mac - disable Full Screen button in selected applications

Right Zoom is now available as a one-month free trial.

Right Zoom is a tweak tool, that changes the way that the “full screen” button acts on a Mac. It will maximize the selected windows, without hiding the Dock and menu bar – instead of going to full screen mode. This could be useful for switchers from the Windows world, or for people who don’t need the full screen mode everywhere.

Attention: if you cannot install this app because of macOS warning, please click the downloaded file in Finder with a Ctrl key or with a right mouse button, and choose Open from the popup menu. Repeat that twice on macOS 10.15 or higher.

Support the project!

We strongly recommend to make your own list of apps where you’d like to use the Right Zoom, because some applications may behave incorrectly with Right Zoom enabled, or you just don’t need any changes in those apps.

Right Zoom is a background process utility, that runs consuming very little resources. It will not slow your system down at all.
