Description from extension meta

Resizes the current window to fill the screen without maximizing.

Image from store Fill Screen
Description from store Changes the window size to be a non-maximized ("restored") window that fills the current monitor's available workspace. I wrote this so I could go from a maximized window to a non-maximized (but still 'full screen'-sized) window state with one click. My motivation was that the tab-bar in Chrome is at the very top of the window, and I run Winamp in Windowshade mode along the top edge of my desktop which blocked access to the tabs - by entering a non-maximized state the tabs are pushed-down and become accessible again. A word on permissions: this extension needs to run content-scripts to access the `window.screen` object which is not currently exposed through the Chrome Extension API. Because the `activeTab` permission does not apply to the Chrome Start Page (which is under `google.com`) it needs permission to run content-scripts on google.com.

    This extension is unfortunately not working for me. I can click it over and over again and I still have to manually drag the corner of the window to the bottom right of the monitor.
