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.
