I would like add some Files\Programs to Top Panel as shown below

Hand Down Arrow

Sound Top Panel menu

When I Click on that Icon (Hand), it should show my customized add-on Files\Programs Ex: Calculator,Dictionary, Units etc., just like Speaker Icon do.

How to Customize it & should run on start-up like default programs?

Is there any tools or any Programs\Scripts are available to achieve that?

Please Do help?

  • Oh. I think you'd need to write your own program to have an indicator applet there. – TheWanderer Aug 24 '15 at 3:57
  • Unfortunately, you would have to write your own indicator applet. – Mark Aug 24 '15 at 3:59

You can use ClassicMenu Indicator for application menu.

For adding files/folders you can use autokey and use this script to the open the particular folder and make sure you the option "show in notification menu"
