You need to edit the desktop file of the particular application you are looking to modify. You can do this by editing (or creating one if not present) the .desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications.

Check this link that explains the process and provides you with an example.

You can also use one of those Gnome utilities. I don’t use Gnome, but I believe alacarte is rather popular? You should be able to install it with no problems.


thank you so much but i also tried editing the .desktop files earlier also but doesn’t works for some apps , but thanks to tell about alacarte, ill try it

thank you , it solved my problem ,thanks for the help
