Yes, but that's been fixed.

That's strange.  When you type C-h k A-S-Return, do you also get a  
message that it is undefined?
That shouldn't be.  Would you please examine the appropriate keymap by  
typing C-h v osx-key-mode-map RET?
You should see a line that says

(A-S-return . aquamacs-toggle-full-frame)

among many other bindings.
Thanks for your help.

With "command", you mean M-x mac-toggle-full-frame RET, right?

Yes, that would be nice, but GNU Emacs is developed and provided as is  
and the GNU project does not have another installer.  As I see it, GNU  
Emacs serves as basis for the distributions and is rarely used by end

They should work without problems.  I know that people have installed  
w3m successfully; either package would go into /Library/Application  
Support/Aquamacs Emacs/... and you would need "require" statements in  
your Preferences.el to load them.

If you post a description of the error you're getting, people on this  
list might be able to help out.
