Does anyone know how I can change a startup program in the local user run folder so that it boots minimized? (Speedfan)

there doesn't appear to be a start command, I'm not up close and personal with the registry but I know my way around. I'm in MyComputer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run I added the key myself, I just put it in the directory with the other user specific programs I have booting. Name: SpeedFan - Type:REG_SZ - Data: C:\Program Files\SpeedFan\Speedfan.exe

Why not write an app yourself that launches it with SW_HIDE as the window mode at startup?

C++ Code with the Windows API:
Code:
#include <windows.h>

int WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)
{
     ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Blah\\Blah.exe\"", NULL, NULL, SW_HIDE);

}


I think... that's off the top of my head lol

In SpeedFan 4.23... click Configure > Options and check the Start Minimized box.
