Applications Menu icon - how to remove or rebrand? Xfce 4.8

Hi - I've looked everywhere and I can't find the answer. I would like to either remove or replace the 'X' with the little mouse on it next to the "Applications Menu" on the panel.

I know the panel plugin is located here:
/usr/share/xfce4/panel/plugins/applicationsmenu.desktop
...but changing the 'icon' entry in there doesn't change anything. I've removed the icons at these locations, and concluded it's not the same icon!
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/xfce4-panel-menu.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/22x22/apps/xfce4-panel-menu.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/24x24/apps/xfce4-panel-menu.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/xfce4-panel-menu.png
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/xfce4-panel-menu.png

Any help gratefully received!

The .desktop file you've edited changed the icon in the "Add new items" dialog. To change the default icon name, you should patch the plugin/applicationsmenu/applicationsmenu.c file and rename the line "#define DEFAULT_ICON_NAME "xfce4-panel-menu"" or replace the pngs.

At this point, xfce is not that friendly to use, the previous gnome has a 'menu editor' option, to add, remove, edit any item, even the icon styles, but xfce, i never find such an option, even the right click on the item is no work!

Well, I'm new to xfce for just two weeks^^;

Can't you just right click on the icon, click on "Properties" then when the window pops up, click on the icon in the window to change it? That's what I have done on mine. Or am I not understanding the problem correctly?

That's how I've handled it.  IIRC, it saved those changes to ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml, maybe that's where the OP should have applied the changes instead of inside /usr/share/.  This doesn't change the system-wide default, it only changes it for the individual user, so I guess the answer depends on exactly what the OP is looking to do.

EDIT: modified the path, it should have been ~/.config

btw, the default png icons are in /usr/share/pixmaps.

Ah, yes. I rarely think about "system wide" changes, since I am the only one using my computer.
