Nope, that only adds things as far as I can tell.  At least it didn't
pull old dead links out.

After hand-altering the menu back into what I think it should be (no
apps showing that do nothing/aren't installed) I did try that right
click.  Good call, BTW, I'd never have found that.  It didn't help,
though. It put everything back like it was before my hand editing even
though it claims to revert all menus to original settings.  That it
did /not/ do.
Ah, well, back to hand-adjusting I guess.
