Does somebody knows how to maximize a window to the half top or half bottom of a screen in gnome?

I have found only how to do it left/right, but not top/bottom. Any ideas?

mutter doesn't support that yet...
You can snap to top/bottom if you install the ShellTile extension.
More details on their home page.
Depending on your setup, you may need to disable the default edge tiling for this to work:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.classic-overrides edge-tiling false


gsettings set org.gnome.mutter edge-tiling false
  • I just tested it and works like a charm! Thanks @don_crissti
