  1. DADHA,
    Good on you for tackling the KB skills for Mac. I frequently wonder if they have thought about it, although they surely must have. Your information leads in the right direction.
    Do you think it would be possible to mimic the Windows “Snap” system.
    IE: CMD-> Snap Right
    CMD <- Snap Left
    CMD \|/ Snap Down [Minimize]
    CMD /|\ Snap FScrn [Maximize|
    Thus far, the lack of such faciity in the KB with Mac system seemed a drag on time.
    Of greatest interest, Mac seems to lack a Restore Down ability. What is your view for a workaround.
    In Windows, Window A Maximized, the mouse pointer brings it down to Window A.
    As I have it, the Mac screen fills the whole screen which causes one to fossick for the buttons.

    SKILLED USE of the KEYBOARD is the fastest way to work.
    ?????? !
