If you prefer to have either Panel launchers or desktop icons, the menu is a convenient place to set them up. Simply click and drag an item from the menu, and drop it where you want it. If you drop it on the Panel, you will get a dialog to confirm creation of the new Launcher.
If you drop it on the desktop, the icon will be created without further confirmation.
Media player assortment
Linux Mint is well known for including media players and codecs that are optional in Ubuntu (which it is based on) and the Xfce version is no exception.
Under the Multimedia menu you will find Banshee, the GNOME Mplayer, the Totem Movie Player and the VLC media player. That has to be considered a good assortment in anyone's book!
On the Graphics menu are the image processing applications and utilities. Here again Linux Mint includes a popular program — GIMP— which has been dropped from the Ubuntu distribution.
It also has gThumb for photo viewing, browsing and simple organisation, but if you are serious about photo management you will probably want to go to the Mint Software Manager and install one of the more advanced programs there.
