    Yes please! Discord is the only electron app I know that doesn't allow starting minimized.

    I open discord with a command `discord` anyway so changing that to `discord -m` would be fantastic

    Had to remove Discord from autostart because this feature is still missing. The Windows version supports it, please support it for Linux too.

    Did a quick google search and i found out Discord does support starting minimised.

    quoting user "blitzcrankBot" :

       You can use the command line argument --start-minimized

    I just tested it, it works perfectly on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

    I can confirm it's working. Thank you Partack and blitzcrankBot. The solution was in a newer duplicate thread:
