ElDiabloConCaca said:No, and I'm not gonna try and convince you that it's better or worse to work this way, but your line of thinking is very "Windows-ish," where application windows expand to take up the entire screen. The Mac just does not work like this, and trying to make it work like this or expecting it to work like this will only lead to frustration.
Yes - I believe you. The trouble is, when the windows are tiled or cascaded the bottom is not accessible. Often things at the bottom of the page are unreadable. Then you have to hit the green button to make the window smaller, then drag it to the proper size. It just seems so strange that they don't give the user an option to maximize everything all the time. Whatever I'm working on, it always seems to get bigger and I need the whole window. (99% of the time.) Options are good because everyone can do what they want. Maybe there is an application out there for me?
Its like Finder columns. I have to constantly resize those things a hundred times a day. Why can't Finder open a column to the minimum size to show the widest column in its entirety? Is this so illogical? Who wants wasted blank space on their desktop? So many things about OSX I admire. These are a mystery to me.
I've come across a lot of people like you. They can't work unless everything else is completely hidden.charles_atlas said:I want every window to open as large as possible.
I doubt it. I believe this is hardcoded into the Carbon/Cocoa APIs, so it could not be changed on a system-wide level without overriding those APIs.Does anyone know where the cascading is controlled? There must be a file that says the first window is "there", and the other windows are "there".
