How can I in Maple write out the number $2 \cdot 10^5$, so it displays the full number with all digits: $200000$?

By typing increasing zeros I can test Maples treshold, and I get: $20$, $200$, $2000$, $20000$, $2 \cdot 10^5$, $2 \cdot 10^6$ etc. How can I change this setting in Maple to show me more digits before using $2 \cdot 10^n$?
