I'm not sure there is a way to delay the activation of shortcuts in the Startup folder. What you could do is to remove the shortcuts so that the applications don't start automatically when the PC boots. Then create a "batch" file which you can run to launch the additional applications once the PC has booted fully.

It might help if you were to explain what it is that you're trying to achieve. What is the "startup" that you are trying to delay?
