How do I have a program in the startup folder minimize to tray?

I would love to know how to have a startup program (in shell:startup folder) to minimize to the tray as soon as it starts :3 thanks.

oh by the way, i already found a program that can send anything to the tray, but you have to right click on the minimize button to do it. i want it to be automatic ;-; is there any software that can do this?

perhaps i could make a simple batch program that starts it up in taskbar? ;.;

This might work: Put a shortcut to the program in the Startup folder. Now right-click the shortcut and go to the Shortcut tab and specify start Minimized.

I used to use TrayIt! a lot with previous Folding@Home console clients.
