I've been using BTT to avoid the annoying full screen when you click the green buttons on windows. On my 2015 Mac (without Touch Bar), it works great. I just got a new Mac with Touch Bar and I can't seem to get the full screen to stop. I checked for updates (which I regularly install), and the setting is still for global "maximize window when left-clicking green button."
This is driving me crazy. Any suggestions?
OK, it looks like somehow it was disabled--now it's functioning (in terms of disabling the "full screen" behavior, but it's still doing something I've not seen before. When I click the green button (set to maximize the window), the window quickly maximizes and then bounces back immediately to the previous size. IOW, it doesn't STAY maximized for more than a split second. Of course, I can manually resize the window, but that sort of defeats the purpose. On my other mac, when I click the green button with this setting, the window simply maximizes--no full screen, no bouncing back.
LOL, never mind. I figured it out. Somehow I had a subsidiary action of zooming into the window. Got rid of that and now it's behaving as expected.
I have no clue how I managed to set the--I tend not to get to fancy with my controls but in the course of setting up a new Mac, stuff gets touched that normally isn't.
