    Gary, Running 10.15.5 on a MacBook Pro, when I hover the pointer over a window's green button the only visual change I see is the "expand" icon within the green button -- I can never get it to display the "split view" menu when I hover over it. I do recall once seeing such, but nary a one in site in recent memory. Might I have somehow disabled the function? Any Idea which one? Or how otherwise to re-enable it. Thanks!

    Jeff: Try it in different apps. Maybe the app you are trying it with is doing something different? DO you see these items in the Window menu at least?

    Hi Gary,

    I prefer to not have the auto window resizing and want to do it manually. Is there any way to turn OFF this feature?

    David: Not sure what feature you are referring to. What I'm showing here are manual features where you control the size of the window.
