Hi *,

I am new to Deepin, using V20.8.

I have installed a 3rd party application, which does not enter itself into the start menu of Deepin.
How can I add it manually so that it will show up there?

I would like to add it to the category "Development".

Can someone tell me how to add it there?

Thank you
Daniel

The only way is to create a .desktop file related to it and move it to /usr/share/applications/ . Try to refer to other .desktop files. You can set the category as Development in it.
