Sorry if this is not the right place to post this.

Can we change the 'Name' paramenter in the default 
/usr/share/applications/thunar-settings.desktop from 'File Manager' to 
'File Manager Preferences'?

When typing in "File Mana" in Whisker, two entries come up, both labeled 
as 'File Manager' and both with the same icon, even though one takes you 
to the preferences and the other to the actual file manager.  It really 
hurts the common workflow of assigning whisker-popup-menu to the super 
key, typing in a few letters, and pressing enter to launch stuff.  I've 
launched the preferences many times when I just wanted the file manager.

Editing the name to 'File Manager Preferences' not only makes it clear 
that it's going to open up the preferences instead of the File Manager, 
but it also puts the entry below the actual 'File Manager' due to the 
way its sorted.  Allowing easier launch of the File Manager.
