since Lion launched i searched for this option that will let me go fullscreen with a gesture so i could toggle between the modes easily and comfortably and at last I found it and I thought to share it with you guys.
first of all if you haven’t done it already download the free better touch tool, this is the best app for expanding, modifying and making your own gestures with all shapes and forms.
after installing follow this 5 simple steps:
1. go to app preferences and select your desire input device (trackpad or magic mouse)
2. click on the + button on the button right where it says “add new gesture”
3. click on the gesture picker in the button left where it says “Magic Mouse Gesture” (if you picked Trackpad then the text follow accordingly), and choose your desired gesture,i pick the Three Finger Click for this one, but you can pick whatever suits you.
4. click on the Predefined Action list in the button right corner as it shows in the photo below:
5. from the list that opens up, choose “Enter fullscreen (if supported)”, which means that if the app has the option to go full screen then it will act on it and if not, then nothing is going to happened.
I hope you like it, and please leave a comment if you do. if you want other tips from iOS to OS X let me know and ill be glad to provide it for you. also if you have some you like to share, please do…
