Where does MS Office 2003 save window position in the registry

I need to identify the registry key or other method MS Office uses to keep track of window position, i.e. whether Word or Outlook opens maximized, or the size/location of a window.

Are you having one user in citrix that is having an issue?  In citrix it should remember the size of the window from the last time you opened word.  

Two ways to fix it.  You can right click the Word icon, go to properties, and to to either the General or shortcut tab and be sure it is set to open as maximized or normal or whatever.

If you are having a user with issues the registry setting is here:  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data\Settings

but I have no idea what to change.  If you delete or rename the key, the next time you run word it will go back to the default settings.

I'm testing a new citrix farm using mandatory profiles.  I use a custom app that captures the reg settings I want the user to be able to keep and writes the settings to a file on logoff.  The user logon 2 script then calls the program reading the settings back into the mandatory profile on logon.  

I just need to indentify the key to capture, so I'll try that one.
