The changes proposed by sajolida makes sense.

"My 2 cents"..:

1. "Featured" or customizeable "favorites":
The term "Favorites" only makes sense if users may customize it. I think that even just within one session, it is still useful if we could right-click on items in any menu and "add to favorites", or also "remove from favorites". However, it would be extra useful if such changes could be saved with persistency.
If no customization is possible, IMO this menu should be renamed to "featured" or the like.

2. Menu filter and descriptive menu item names:
Both for visibility, for newcomers and efficiency (filtering), I think the menu should have a search filter at the top, which would filter among the menu items and even among all the possible software file names in "bin" etc. The "match" should be against both sotware file names but also against any parts of the menu titles.
For example, the "KeepassXC" could be named "KeepassXC password manager", both to make it more obvious for newcomers, but also to make a filter on "password" find it. Likewise, "Thunderbird" could be renamed to "Thunderbird email client", and GtkHash to "GtkHash checksum tool"
