XFCE4 Menu Cheatsheet

Today I had a few issues with finding the correct files for XFCE4 installed on an Ubuntu release. Due to Gnome being present all the existing menu editors assumed I use Gnome and were pretty much useless...

So basically, the files of importance:

Main Menu File:
/etc/xdg/menus/xfce-applications.menu

All the .desktop files mentioned are in:
/usr/share/applications/

You can copy an existing .desktop and modify it to create a custom menu item then simply reference it in the correct file, mine were all in the main xfce-applications.menu file.
