How can I ensure that Internet Explorer is started in "Maximized" mode to help with my Citrix scripts?

How can I ensure that Internet Explorer is started in "Maximized" mode to help with my Citrix scripts?

Starting Internet Explorer in its Maximized mode will help create more consistent Citrix scripts since the Citrix replay engine relies on screen co-ordinates.

Windows applications, including Internet Explorer, keep their state between sessions, so if one is closed when it is reduced, it will open at the same size. If it gets closed when it is Maximized it should also open Maximized. If Internet Explorer continually gets resized or moved during or between tests then there is a high chance the scripts will fail.

To ensure Internet Explorer always starts in its Maximized state, right click on the Internet Explorer short cut or QuickLaunch icon and open the Short cuts tab. In the Run option, choose "Maximized" from the drop down list and hit Apply. Now when Internet Explorer opens it will always start in the same state.
