Use: CWnd::ShowWindow(SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED) in your program to maximize the application window.

I can't tell you based on what you have posted.  About all I know is that you have an MFC app since this is the area where you posted your question.  Is it a dialog application, MDI, SDI?

You can call CWnd::ShowWindow() anywhere in your application where there is a valid CWnd object to call it against.  Once your main windows has been created you have a CWnd and can call it.
