In terms of its interface, IDLE is more like a REPL + text editor than what is commonly thought of as programming IDEs (Visual Studio, PyCharm/IDEA, Matlab, JupyterLab etc.)  Terminals and text editors almost universally do not launch maximized by default.  Therefore I think starting IDLE maximized would be an unnecessary departure from the common, expected UX of similar desktop apps.

I suggest closing this as "won't fix".
