Maximum is for a window. For example when you open a program or a
internet browser, then in the upper right hand corner just to the left
of the X will be the minimize or maximize toggle that you click.
If you are talking about your screen resolution which makes icons bigger
or smaller then that is in the Display in the Control Panel. Click
Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel and look for Display
or Appearance and Personalization. Open it and adjust the screen
resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons.

Connect the monitor to the "video-output" port on your laptop, to see if the monitor is working correctly.
You make have to tell the laptop to send the video-output to "both" the internal LCD screen and the external monitor.
If it works, then your monitor is OK.
Restart your computer, and keep tapping the F8 key, until you get a menu of startup items. Choose the 'VGA' startup option, to select the "minimal" device-drivers for your video-card. With the "minimal" drivers, your monitor should still be working.
