This is probably not the best way but has worked for me...

To create a new transcript:

   t := TranscriptStream new.
   t open.

With #open you can create any number of windows on the same transcript 
stream. All of these views are kept in the ivar 'dependents'. So you 
could do:

   (t dependents at: 1) minimize.
   (t dependents at: 1) restore.
   (t dependents at: 1) maximize.
   t dependents do: [:e | e restore].

Note that there may be other things in the dependents collection such as 
any basic inspectors you have open on the object.

The global var 'Transcript', which you probably use in your code, refers 
to the instance of TranscriptStream available via the menu 
World->open...transcript. So if you want to manipulate the "main" 

   Transcript dependents: [:e | e restore]

Hope this helps.
