Bug Description

Right now we have Alt + F10 to toggle maximization, Alt + F5 to unmaximize, and Super + Up to maximize. I propose we switch the Super + Up to toggle maximize, since it's unclear how to unmaximize once you're into that state.

Those settings are part of org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings and therefore are handled in elementary-settings

On my Loki, it works out-of-box, even when I has original user profile from Freya.

Just for clarity, he's saying the shortcut should *toggle* maximize state and not only maximize.

I agree, Super + up should toggle maximization. It doesn't make sense for it to just maximize.
