How can I add and change items in my Applications Menu?

In Gnome Applications Menu, I would like to move gEdit, Gnu Emacs, KWrite, Kate, NEdit and Scribes from the Accessories menu, to the Programming menu.

Is there any simple way to do this ?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Open System -> Preferences -> Main Menu (hope I got it properly translated) and simply drag and drop the elements you want to change.

(EDIT: As Reuben Swartz suggests in a comment below, a quicker way to get to the same place is right click on the Application Menu and then select "Edit Menu").

On a side note, you can even Create a new menu (or menus) and create launchers within any menu -in case you don't want to delete those elements from the Accesories menu, but just want to have duplicate entries-.

simple, obvious, thx. – Stephane Rolland Mar 8 '11 at 1:08
Or you could right click on the application menu and select edit menus. This will get you to the same screen. – Reuben Swartz Mar 8 '11 at 1:15
Quicker ;)... indeed an enhancement of my proposal. – luri Mar 8 '11 at 1:16
