Question Removing icon in debian

I have been using debian for a while now and I believed that I knew enough commands to get most of my work done until I realized that I cannot even remove a icon from menu bar.
One of the icon that I created on menu bar is no longer useful and I want to remove it, I tried right click, left click, devoted myself to google god but I found nothing, most results were about removing items from menu.
Please help me regarding this problem.

Thanks in advance

Edit: Found the solution from a friend.

Just hit alt and left click on the icon you want to remove, an option will of move/remove will come. It can be removed from there.

It depends on which Desktop Environment (or pure Window Manager) and which Debian version you're using...

If you're using GNOME in wheezy, try this:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface menus-have-icons false
For Testing/Unstable, try this:
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides "{'Gtk/MenuImages': <0>}"
If you're not using GNOME (why not? It's lovely...), have a look at lxappearance → Other → untick box marked "Show images in menus"
