Use either "alacarte" or the "gnome-menu-editor" to modify your menu.
good luck

Can you please give me more details ? I don't know what "alacarte" or the "gnome-menu-editor" are, nor where to find them.

type that command in your shell. then a window open.
Now select a link and move where ever you want.

for example if you want to move pidgin link,

go to internet -> select "pidgin" -> cut

go to your required location -> paste

This alacarte thing is great. Can I change the name of a menu (from example rename "Internet" to "test") ?
And how to access the "gnome-menu-editor" you were talking about ?
