How to move a menu item

Postby matrixebiz on Thu Jan 31, 2013 1:38 pm

Hello, I installed PlayOnLinux and it shows up in my Game program group. How do I move it out of there to put it in another group like Applications?
I tried to drag and drop (didn't do anything) I tried to Right click on it to see if there is a move feature (there is not)

Also, an luck in getting iTunes to work properly in Wine? is there another program that iTunes works with?

Thanks

Depends on your desktop environment. For Cinnamon and MATE at least, you can right-click the menu button and select to edit your menu.

using Mint 14 Cinnamon, the only options I have when I right click on it are;

Add to panel
Add to desktop
Add to favorites

no Move option :(

Are you sure? Right-click the menu button, as in the button in the lower right on your screen with the little gear wheel icon and the word "Menu" on it. You are clicking on the icon of one of your applications in the menu...

Ah, yes and no :) Yes in the sense that I'm sure that is the way to get to the edit menu. No as in that also in the edit menu you can't actually move a menu item from one category to another, as I just found out. From there it would seem your only option is to create a new menu item in the category where you want it, and copy the command from the other menu item. Not ideal...
