Mathematica preferences - saving windows layout

GROUPS:
When I bring up Mathematica, I'd like the windows (including help) to open just as they were when I closed Mathematica last.  That way I don't have to resize/move windows every time I bring up the tool.

I can't figure out how to set the preferences to do this... is it possible?

thanks,
-Joe

Thanks Isaac!

That gets me most of the way there.

This functionality is part of the suite of tools I wrote some while ago (which I still use every day), "A WorkLife Framework" (http://scientificarts.com/worklife/).
But I will see in the next couple of days if I can find time to create a funciton that does specifically what you are asking for and which you can add to a palette. 

By the way, these days you can have WorkLife under a shareware approach -- I give a license and you can contribute what you wish via PayPal if you find it useful and choose to continue to use it.

Wait...  I created something like this a while ago...
It is located here as a palette that allows you to save several window states for reopening at a future time...

The only caveat is that the palette must exist in a location on your drive that has been designated as a trusted directory.  If you install the palette then it will be trusted automatically.
