Prefered applications- where saved?

Hi.
Where does the Mate save the list/file/info about the prefered applications.
Changeing from menu I have only 2 alternatives and can not enter the name of an other program.
I want to find the list/file itself and edit it.
But where is it?
Nothing at /home/user/.local/share
Thank you.
