Ubuntu – find the applications menu editor


In a Ubuntu forum, I was researching on how to open wine programs. I found some instructions that may be useful. I can successfully download the programs, but I don't know how to open them. Here the instructions.

  1. Open Applications Menu Editor
    Applications –> System Tools -> Application Menu Editor
  2. Click The New Menu Button. Fill Out Wine Apps (or whatever you want)
    for the name. and hit enter. You can Add an Icon if you wish, i
    prefer to keep mine default for now..
  3. Click On The New Menu Item You Just Created. Now Click The Button
    That Says New Entry.
    Fill Out the Form the way you like. as for the command. youll want
    to enter: wine /home/{user}/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/{path to
    your program.exe}
  4. Choose an Icon If You Wish, again i didnt due to preference. And
    lastly you want to click the 'run in terminal' button.
  5. Close The Menu Editor And Voila! You Now have a quick and easy way
    to launch your favorite windoz programs ^_^. I think this is a good
    howto.. considering if its one youll use alot… doing this will
    save you quite some time in the end..

I keep getting stuck on the first step. I can't seem to find the Applications Menu Editor. I know that this is probably a simple question, but could someone tell me where to find that? Again, thank you in advance for all of your help.
