Use key combination or method so Google Chrome will always launch minimized

I'm looking for software that will allow me to use a key combination or method to launch software such as Google Chrome minimized.

For example, while I am using my Windows 10 laptop (with only the built-in LCD display, while it isn't connected to an external monitor) I will click on a link within an Experts Exhcnage email within Outlook 2016 and Google Chrome will then launch maximized. I would like a way of quickly being able to set Google Chrome to launch minimized so that these Experts Exchange links will launch and then when I am ready to read them I can click on the Google Chrome icon in the taskbar to maximize Google Chrome.

This will also be helpful when either opening other file attachments (such as Microsoft Office file attachments within Outlook or files within Windows Explorer).

Being able to press a certain key combination or enabling this setting and then disabling it when I don't want this to be done will be very helpful.

What applications, utilities or methods will allow this to be done?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

CTRL+SHIFT+CLICK should open it in the background

OK but are there any ways of doing what I have asked by setting all future launchings of a particular app like Google Chrome to launch minimized until I set it back to always launch maximized without having to use a special key combination while clicking on hyperlinks found within emails?

The above will only work for the initial launch of Chrome, not when you click on links from other applications

That's what I found as well.

So does anyone else know how to do what I have posted in this question?

No. What is wrong with the special key combination?
