How to unhide a software from start menu

I accidentally hid xtreme download manager and now i can only run it from terminal how to unhide it from start menu

Welcome to the Forum!

This depends on how you hid the application from the Whisker Menu. You might want to give more information on that.

In the meantime you can try right-clicking on the Whisker Menu icon (Manjaro logo) > Edit Applications > find the application that has to be visible (xtreme download manager) > disable the option Hide from menus > Save the Menu Editor and open Whisker Menu again to see if that worked.

thanks for replying, i hid it by right clicking it from whisker menu, i can’t find it after right clicking and by clicking on the whisker menu icon as it’s hiden, should i try making a launcher? how can i do that

Navigate to the directory ~/.local/share/applications/ and search for a .desktop file referring to Xtreme Download Manager.
The content of this file must be similar to this:

[Desktop Entry]

Delete this file and reopen Whisker Menu to see if the application is there.

You might need to logout/login for the changes to have effect.

Thanks, I found the file and set the Hidden=false

this helped and now the software is accessible from whisker menu
