Yes, with recent vims, setting columns/lines to more than that possible
doesn't actually maximize it. I think previously, that's how maximizing
used to work leaving a tiny bit place to click on the desktop. But now
it seems to be truly & snuggly maximizing.
If you're using Win32, then do you think using "Alt-Space [rxn]" to
restore, maximize / minimize would be pretty useful, besides
standardising it across Win32.
If your ':se winaltkeys' is yes then you could use it as such, else you
could use the following mapping & then use the same.
map <M-Space> :simalt ~<CR>
