    If you use the command line cmd /c start /min taskmgr, it will start minimised (only on the tray if this option is set in task manager). You can make the shortcut under the registry key or in the startup folder on the start menu.

    You can add a shortcut to taskmanager in [All] Programs -> Startup.

    Yes, and then right-click on the shortcut and tell it to start minimized.

    Why not just start /min taskmgr?

    That's a nicer solution.

    Start is a command provided by the shell (cmd.exe), not a seperate program.
