it's much simpler to add the Main Menu applet to the panel by right clicking the panel and clicking add to panel

than from the classic gnome main menu select the icon you want with a right click and add to desktop


when you are done organising the desktop, right click on the main menu and remove from desktop


much simpler and no hunting for icons


:D
