    In order for anyone to be able to help you, you must be more specific other than "I have installed a lot of software using Add/Remove"

    1.) What software did you install?
    2.) Do you know that the software in question creates a menu entry in Kmenu? Not all packages do, such as CLI tools for example.

    Specifying what you have added will probably enable someone to assist you.

    The best answer I can give you would be to manually add them with kmenuedit from a terminal or right-click on the dragon icon and select menu editor (they both do the same, just telling you the cli command). I personally do not use 7zip in a gui, nor do I know if there is a gui for it unless you are referring to xarchiver, I use p7zip which is cli.

    As far as the games, again, you'll have to manually add them, though why you would want to play games on a security distro is beyond me, and from the old forums, you'll most likely receive the same answer. But to each their own.

    That's the basic point in all of the other posts (except yours of course) in this thread. We don't know. I would suggest you look for the default install location of the various packages you have installed. Use of the which command as well as locate and or find will tell you more info than we can give. There is a sticky that I done in the beginner section that you should start looking at.

    You need to add them manually.
    Code:
    root@bt:~# kmenuedit
    (if you need help once you open kmenuedit, just hit F1)

    Code:
    dpkg --list
    List software installed via the package management system.

    Code:
    dpkg -L <package_name>
    Lists the full path and filename of files associated with a particular package, including the program binaries.
