Have a look at the files in "/usr/share/applications"
or "/usr/local/share/applications/"

For editing the structure have a look in "/etc/xdg/menus" and "/etc/xdg/templates"

Desktop Menu Specification

if you are using JWM or IceWM or maybe a few other window managers I have not fought of, the command to rebuild the menus is "fixmenus" then restart the window manager. In Desktop Environments like LXDE, XFCE, Gnome, KDE ,ect they refresh differently.

adobe flash is rubbish!
