Setting up menu / editing menu buttons
Drag & Drop Icons from the Desktop or Explorer
The easiest way to add items to EasyDesktop is to drag & drop them from your desktop or the File Explorer.

Windows 10: Adding Items From the Start Menu
Windows 10 does not give EasyDesktop direct access to the Start Menu. To add start menu items to EasyDesktop the easiest way is to first drag the icon from the Start Menu to the desktop and then drag the resulting shortcut to an EasyDesktop menu item. You can then delete the shortcut from the desktop.

Accessing a Menu Button's Advanced Properties
Each EasyDesktop menu button has an advanced option and customization screen. To access that screen right-click on a button with your mouse and the menu button menu will appear. Select  "Edit Button" from that menu and the "Edit Menu Button" will appear. Help for the "Edit Menu Button" windows can be found here.

Add Commonly Used Documents to the Menu
EasyDesktop had the ability to directly launch document files. To add document files simply drag the files from the explorer to a menu button.

Moving Things Around
To move existing menu buttons around the menu, simply click and hold on a menu button, and move it where you want and let the mouse button up (drag & drop). If the destination is on another menu page, you can move the mouse to the left or right edge of the EasyDesktop window, to switch pages while dragging. To copy a menu button, hold down the "Shift" key while dragging and dropping.

TIP: If you are trying to drag a Windows file or icon to EasyDesktop, but you cannot see the EasyDesktop window, simply drag the icon over the EasyDesktop button in the taskbar and hold momentarily. This will cause EasyDesktop to come to the front, allowing you to place the icon onto it.
