It will also appear elsewhere (launcher => System => VirtualBox)
Favourites is just a shortcut to the launcher entry.

Right-click on the KDE icon at the base of the launcher (menu)
Select "Menu Editor" from the drop-down list
Expand the Category you're interested in eg. System
Left-click on the entry eg. VirtualBox
You'll see the command and can edit it, if you click on the Advanced tab
you can change the work path, left-click on the (VirtualBox) icon to
edit it's properties.
Though you don't ask:-
;Right-clicking on the KDE launch icon will give you access to the
Application Launcer Settings - it'll also allow you to turn off "Kick
off menu style".
;Right-clicking on the bottom panel will allow you to "Unlock Widgets"
(it's under Panel Options) - when widgets are unlocked you can
right-click on any launcher (KDE menu) entry and assign it to the
Desktop, Favourites, or the Panel.
