Call the Maximize() method of your MainWindow:
public static void Main (string[] args)
	Application.Init ();
	MainWindow win = new MainWindow ();
	win.Show ();
	Application.Run ();

Open in new window

When I do this I get on the win.maximize line this error:

Type Mainwindow does not contain a definition for  'maximize' and no extension method 'maximize' of type 'Mainwindow' could be found

I have:
using System;
using Gtk;

C# is case-sensitive. Try "Maxmimize()" as demonstrated above.
