Resize Tmux window size to full screen

Tmux is one of the most useful tool when it comes to using a linux terminal.

Tmux is a terminal multiplexer, it allows a user to access multiple terminals (or windows), each running a separate program, while providing a single screen to work on. Tmux is useful for running more than one command-line program at the same time, increasing productivity and the way you work.

In case you are connected to multiple monitors or using a multiple devices to access the same tmux window, then, there are high chances that your tmux window is now set to the most recetly used window size. The window looks cropped and you will have to resize it to bring it back to full-screen.

This works for the latest version of tmux.
