Running apps in a minimized window with a registry key

Can I make an application run in a minimized window using the registry key hkey_Local_MachinesoftwaremicrosoftwindowsCurentVersionrun?
Yes. Create a shortcut to the program in question and in its Shortcut options set the Run option to " Minimized". Then place a reference to the shortcut in the Run key. Be sure to use filename and extension when referring the shortcut; if the shortcut is called "2run.lnk", you need to specify the "lnk" for the command processor to run it correctly.
