When ever I start IE6 it starts up in min mode.  Where do you change the setttings? When ever I go into IE short cut it pops me into the internet options screen. I know I'm just missing something.

It'll reset the IExplorer state.

Open IE, maximize, then set to the size and location you want it to open at.  Then in the FILE drop down, select CLOSE.

Then when you open IE again, it will be there :)
