Meaning – The term maximize, refers to a choice that enlarges a window to its largest possible size.

Nearly all open windows in a GUI (graphical user interface) have resizing options. Maximize allows the user to enlarge a window, usually making it fill the entire screen or the program window where it is contained.

When a window is maximized, it cannot be moved until it is reduced in size using the Restore button.

Not all windows can be maximized. If none of the above steps help with maximizing a window or the maximize button is not available, the window cannot be maximized.

Example of usage“With Apple macOS, the maximize button is represented as a yellow button found in the top-left corner of the window. If this button is missing, the program does not support a maximized window.”
