executing soffice.exe --minimize will "Starts minimized. The splash screen is not displayed."
Indeed the splash screen is not displayed but the program window opens normally (i.e. not minimized to the taskbar)
Correction: the command is soffice.exe --minimized (it was a typo in the bug report not in the procedure)
This still applies to LO 22.214.171.124 under Windows XP x86 (didn't test other Win versions)

I think this screenshot was added to the wrong bug.
In any case the bug still occurs with Version: 126.96.36.199

According to the man page for 3.5.7:
Keeps the splash screen minimized.
Per current sources:
--minimized Keeps the splash screen minimized.

> normally (i.e. not minimized to the taskbar)
It looks like the Online Help Wiki might incorrectly describe expected behavior. Punting this over to Documentation for review.
Status -> NEW
@Qubit, "Keeps the splash screen minimized" doesn't make any sense. It's the groklaw description that is wrong.
In any case you are missing the point: this is NOT a documentation problem! --minimized simply doesn't work! NOTHING is minimized!

The description could be better-worded (perhaps "Do not show the splash screen"), but it does describe a real phenomenon.

Try comparing the result of the following two commands:
Note that in the first case you will see a splash screen appear; in the second case, you will see no splash screen.

It is simply wrong. The start screen is NOT minimized (otherwise it would show as a minimized task) it simply is not DISPLAYED. The original message (see Comment #1) was correct.
The problem still remains that LO is NOT started minimized.

I know that. See Comment #1 from November 2012...
