A Beginner’s Guide to Resizing Mac Windows

You can resize a window in the Finder and almost any app by clicking and dragging on the edges or corners of a window. You can use the Option key to drag opposite sides or all sides at once. The sides of a window will stop at the edges of the screen. You can also double-click a corner or edge to move that side to the edge of the screen or fill the entire screen without going into full screen mode.

    Wow! I've used Mac's exclusively since 96 and didn't know about a few of these. Thanks!

    Me - I have been using a Mac since 1984 and am still learning new things like double click option corners. Brilliant!

    There's another way to resize Mac windows. When you take the cursor to the edge just use three fingers to expand the window.
