For some reason VB is under Utilities for me, rather than
System. Other than that, I found everything I asked for.
I've left your first comments below because it raised another related
point I wanted to get at.

A word of explanation: I put VB under favorites my self. Here is
why. First it looked like a long job to find it by hand; so I
used the search box to find it... I still could not determine where it
was in the menus. Seems like something I should be able to see from
the `search' output (the path to the icon in the menus) But since I
couldn't and I didn't want to use search every time... I drug it
to `favorites' since that is the first thing that opens.
I say all that to point up the fact that (In my opinion) the path
information would often be nearly as useful as finding the item. It
seems a serious shortcoming to the menu `search' dialog, that it does
not provide the path (inside the menus) for the items it finds.
PS - what does %F mean at the end of a command path, such as the one
for emacs23: /usr/bin/emacs23 %F.
