Advance Menu Editing

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi I have Cinnamon (on Fedora) running on a netbook and the menu in now too tall for the screen. I have tried to use Alacarte to edit it but the items I want to remove aren't available. I would like to remove "Places" and "Recent Files" and also move a menu item from "Programming" to somewhere else so I can delete it also. I'm sure there is a way to do it but everything I've searched for mentions Alacarte. thanks in advance. (HowTos)
