I've found TMUX's choose-tree command to be quite useful when navigating between sessions, but I dislike it only displaying inside of the current pane. I'd prefer it to overtake my entire screen.

Inside my tmux.conf I'm attempting to write something to do just that, but haven't quite figured it out:

# ~/.tmux.conf
bind-key a resize-pane -Z \; choose-tree

My trigger command Ctrl-a + a will zoom the current tmux pane to be fullscreen and run choose-tree inside of it. Unfortunately this leaves the pane zoomed in.

Any ideas how I can unzoom the pane afterwards, or a different approach for fullscreen TMUX session selection?

You can do choose-tree -Z to open in zoomed mode.
