Change Menu Button Content?

Postby R3MMY24 » Sun Apr 21, 2013 11:28 am

I want to know how to change the menu content in Linux Mint 14 MATE. Change it into something that Windows Classic has where it's just one listed menu. And edit it into any order I choose, and add/remove things from it.

How do I do this?

If you want the Win Classic type menu, do something absolutely horrifying and right click the menu button and click "Delete". Then right click the far left of the panel where it was, choose "Add to panel...", and scroll down to "MATE Menu" (or "Menu Bar" or something like that). This adds a more traditional kind of menu to it. If you want the old menu back, you can delete that menu the same way you deleted the other one, and add a "Mint Menu" to the bar. To edit the contents, right click the menu and do "Edit menu...".
