Reading on manpage for
i3-dmenu-desktop, I can see that the dmenu items that are listed belong to the
.desktop entries in the following directories:
/usr/local/share/applications/ (this contains only a file called
mimeinfo.cache in QubesOS 4.1)
The last folder location listed above seem to hold the majority of the unwanted applications I listed above.
For example, “File Manager” entry seems to originate from the file
This file contains a line that reads:
Reading on the Desktop Entry Specification I see that line specifies, “identifying the desktop environments that should display/not display a given desktop entry.”

XFCE4 (specifying the version number of XFCE, too).
OR, reading further into the Desktop Entry Specification, I am seeing that there is another option that can be specified per
.desktop entry, which is:
So, should I, as the root user, add one of these to the dmenu items’
.desktop file in order to get them not-displayed?
Looking for suggestions.
