Bug Description

Since Yelp's content isn't up-to-date, please see

There are two sentences on this page that use term "Windows key". All instances of "Meta key", "Windows key" etc. were supposed to be replaced by using "Super key". Please replace "Windows key" with "Super key" for the sake of unification.

To maximize a window, grab the titlebar and drag it to the top of the screen, or just double-click the titlebar. To maximize a window using the keyboard, hold down the windows key and press ↑.

To restore a window to its unmaximized size, drag it away from the edges of the screen. If the window is fully maximized, you can double-click the titlebar to restore it. You can also use the keyboard shortcut windows key and ↓.
