How to Manage the Main Menu Icons on Gnome

No matter what desktop environment you choose to work with, or if you prefer playful docks to classic menus, your system’s main repository of applications will always lie on your main menu, found on a corner of your screen or on the center of it in the case that you are using GNOME Shell. Installing software from here and there may quickly lead to an over-bloated main menu where users cannot easily find what they are looking for, while new users are confused as to how they can add a compiled binary file on their menu. It is imperative that the Main Menu is managed and customized effectively in order to serve its user in the most ergonomic way possible.
