What elements should I define in a Desktop Entry file of Directory type for xfce? Although it can be created using thunar file manager by right clicking on the folder, so what I want to know is that if its possible to create one manually.

I wish XFCE was well documented as other DEs

You will find detailed information on desktop entry files here.

I'm unable to find XFCE's desktop entry specifications, but in Gnome desktop entry specifications, the desktop entry for a directory must be ending with .directory, and not .desktop.

Actually that link is the origin of my question. I tried setting type to Directory but xfce perceives it as an invalid .desktop file and it does not recognize .directory. –  Aman Sharma Sep 27 '12 at 12:32
