This function tries multiple solutions for maximizing the figure window, so it should work on nearly all releases of Matlab and Octave on nearly all OSes (Windows/Mac/Unix). This is written to be portable and shareable. If you know more solutions, please contact me, so I can add it to the list.
1 attempt to set the WindowState property to maximized
2 use JavaFrame to maximize the figure
3 press alt-space followed by x (Windows/Linux hotkey)
4 ugly solution: set the position to the screen size minus a small margin (this includes an attempt to check for a multiple monitor set up)
