Fullscreen Applications on OS X


Sometimes I need apps running in fullscreen, without dock and menubar. OSX is natively not able to fulfill my needs, but with MegaZoomer fullscreen works with all applications based on Cocoa, but some, like iTunes for example, are based on the Carbon-Framework and therefore are not able to zoom. You need a hack.

1. Close iTunes
2. Rightclick iTunes.app: Show Package Content
3. Go into “Contents”
4. Edit “info.plist”
5. Insert “LSUIPresentationMode” and “4” like above
6. Save “info.plist”

If you now open iTunes again, the menubar and the dock disappear and can be accessed if you touch the edge of your screen (with the mouse, of course).
