I'd like to know this too. I'd love to see a way to better control 
maximizing a window. the windowBoundingRect is a little out of date.

1) It only applies to the primary monitor (any platform) and I am 
finding a lot more of our customers have multiple monitors these days 
(usually a laptop with a larger desktop monitor). However, with Catalina 
allowing iPads to be extra monitors for a macOS system, we're only 
likely to have more situations where desktop apps need to be multiple 
monitor aware

2) I am not sure it works any more on the latest versions of macOS
