As in not maximized? If that's the case, I think it's a registry key, though I'm not sure which one.
You could, in lieu of jacking with the registry, just stretch the new window out to each corner, thus making it look maximized. Then close it, and when you open a new one, it should default to that size.

Try this do as everone has said drag it to a full screnn put here is the TRICK when you close it do not press X instead go to file in the upper left corner then press close.. It will cose our window and the next time ou open it it will remember the full screen setting as it was the last setting you set.
Hope that helps...
