Change iTunes 9.0.1 Maximize Button Behavior

Sep 27, 2009 - 3 Comments

itunes iTunes 9.0 removed the ability to click the green ‘minimize/maximize’ button to get into iTunes Mini Player mode, you had to hold down Option to get the Mini Player. iTunes 9.0.1 Update fixed this problem (as if it was a bug, but I imagine it was changed back due to user confusion and complaints), but if you happened to like the way the iTunes 9.0 green widget button behaved, then you can get that quirky maximize behavior (and option-click for Mini Player) back with the following Terminal command:

defaults write com.apple.iTunes zoom-to-window -bool YES

to set it back to the default behavior in iTunes 9.0.1 use:

defaults write com.apple.iTunes zoom-to-window -bool NO

    I’m looking for a script that will allow the yellow minimize button to convert to iTunes mini player, and the green maximize button to maximize the window (as it does in most other apps). Can someone help? Thanks in advance.
