I'm a newcomer to Linux world and installed ubuntuStudio, and this distro have many programs for media edit, so I want to investigate them one by one, simultaneously.
I'm having problem about that because it's confusing and uncomfortable to click the menu icon every time I want to open a new program, like 'Application Menu -> Audio Production -> Ardour3' to execute the program and again 'Application Menu -> Audio Production -> Hydrogen'...
I want to open the programs in the menu on a more stable place, and by stable I mean clicking the program name doesn't make the menu disappear, so you don't have to start from the very start again. And so I want to make a copy that exactly contains same programs as Application Menu does. Or at least I hope I can copy the link on the menu.
So I was tried to open the Menu on the file manager (thought Windows providing the option, exploring Start button), which couldn't be done of course.
The Software Center seems doesn't provide the path for each programs, and I don't know what program on the Software Center are on the menu, so I couldn't tell if it's that program I've seen on the menu.
I've read few answers on this site about 'where's default folder for apps,' or 'What is the equivalent to the Windows "Program Files" folder?' and since I got programs are not stored on a single folder, from the answers, I don't sure I can locate every program on the menu on the file manager. I don't get what kind of file is currently linked to the menu, some of them are having grey square icon and others paper icon. So I doubt I can manually link every items on the menu to somewhere else.
I think there should be not too messy way to achieve having copy of Application Menu, but I just started learning this OS, so I can't get the way by my own.
