Method 1:
Copy all the startup item's target path and its additional command to a text. If I need restoring them, creating startup items and filling the paths one by one.

Method 2:
Create shortcuts for each startup item. If I need restoring them, drag and drop into the Startup Delayer window. It's better to double click the added items therefore Startup Delayer can find the target apps. But you still need adding addtional command yourself.

I'd still rather use this program because it's specifically designed for what it does, rather than one big lump of stuff that I may or may not use. I also like the user interface of this program better, as it allows more precise control rather than a dropdown menu. You can also drag-drop right from the time line interface.

I like and recommend Startup Delayer, but with Glary Utilities you also have included a good startup delay function.
