My first problem is there are too many games cluttering the Games
sub-menu. How to delete selected games from the menu without
removing
the executable?

My second problem is I do not use Firefox. I wish to replace it
with a non-Debian executable [SeaMonkey].

I've seen instructions somewhere [can't recall where] for adding
an application to a sub-menu.

TIA


System (on top menu bar)
look and feel
mate menu

You can create sub-folders to divide the games or other apps into
your
own sorted lists by creating new menu (a sub-folder) with your
chosen
name and then drag and drop the program titles into the new sub-
menu
(sometimes quite tricky to get the exact placement to move the
program)



I don't observe that menu structure.
I'm using Stretch (9.1.0) with MATE (1.16.2) .

The menu structure I see is:
System
     Preferences
         Hardware
             .../.../...
         Internet and Network
             .../.../...
         Look and Feel
             Appearance
             Popup Notifications
             Screensaver
             Windows
         Other
             .../.../...
         Personal
             .../.../...
     Administration
     Control Center
.
.
.

Thank you.

Then you most likely need to add the package it comes in - my *guess*
would be either mate-menu or mate-control-center although it could be
hiding in one of the others.

Once installed you can also just untick the box next to the software
you don't want to see and it will be invisibly there until you next
tick it.

The package needed was "mate-menu".
There is now a "Main Menu" option underneath "Look and Feel".
A little experimentation suggests I can organize the menus "my way" ;)
An initial web search for {"mate desktop" "mate-menu" documentation} did not turn up a manual specifically covering this option.

I did receive warning messages when installing with Synaptic - not sure of their significance: W: Target Packages (main/binary-i386/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Packages (main/binary-all/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Translations (main/i18n/Translation-en_US) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Translations (main/i18n/Translation-en) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Packages (contrib/binary-i386/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Packages (contrib/binary-all/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Translations (contrib/i18n/Translation-en_US) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Translations (contrib/i18n/Translation-en) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Packages (non-free/binary-i386/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Packages (non-free/binary-all/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Translations (non-free/i18n/Translation-en_US) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9 W: Target Translations (non-free/i18n/Translation-en) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:5 and /etc/apt/sources.list:9
