Autostart app in tray, not window

This may be an odd question, but is there a way I can launch an app on startup and it doesn’t launch as a window, but instead a system tray item? I have a few applications I’d like to launch that way, mainly Steam. I’ve attempted adding window rules, but haven’t found one suitable.
OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
Kernel: 5.15.48-1-MANJARO
DE: Plasma 5.24.5

Some apps must have parameters for that…


steam -silent

Steam - ArchWiki

Thanks for the help! I never thought to look into the command-line side of things.
