Left-Click shortcut menu file

I am running Red Hat 4.
I've found every menu file known to man besides the file that relates to the "Custom" left-click-on-the-desktop shortcut menu file. I found something that I thought was it in /usr/share/config (kdestop_custom_menu1), but it only includes the default Terminal option. My custom menu for my user has lots of applications listed, but I can't find a file that relates to it.

If anyone knows where it is, it would be very helpful.

generally, all your user customization files are in hidden .<files> or .<directories/> in your home folder so that each user can have their own settings.

it depends which desktop manager you use, i presume it's kde.
the file is in /home/<username>/.kde/share/config/kdesktop_custom_menu1

(how did i found that? i changed the left-click-on-the-desktop behaviour in the kde customization window, saved it, and then searched the last accessed files. read man find ;-)

have fun!
