Q&A > GUI Programming > How can i maximize a Tk application on win32 ? - Answer contributed by kelan

I don't think it's possible through Tk. Being maximized or not isn't a property of the application, it's a property of the window, and windows are "owned" by the GUI (Windows), not by the application (Tk).

I think you'd have to find some way to send a maximization request to the GUI so that it will maximize the window for you. Something somewhere in the Win32 modules might have something you could use.

Update: My intuition was right, but eserte provided the concrete answer.

[Eily]: Astérix
1nickt gives up on finding a Perl YAML parser that supports hash merging. In 2017.
[LanX]: Oh yes true, he lost his accent! xD
[Eily]: and since his name is a modified version of astérisque (asterisk), which is a typographical symbol, I think it's even funnier that he would lose a diacritic
[Eily]: the pun doesn't work so well with "he lost a diacritic" though :P
[LanX]: Obelix might offer to find it again ...
[LanX]: not much to translate anyway since Goscinny died
[Eily]: https://en. wikipedia.org/ wiki/List_of_Aster ix_characters some of the names were changed to include a new pun
[LanX]: sure some are even funnier now
[LanX]: some lost because they were not translated like Epidemais
