Duplicate menu items

Hi there, great distro. I installed steam and it appears twice in games and twice in internet menus, I cannot figure out how to get rid of the duplicates, when you go into menu editor, steam only appears once in internet and once in games. Any ideas how I can fix this please?

Re: Just an observation...

Was a fan of voldermint until 19 came on to the scene, slowed things down a lot, tried manjarrow, wouldnt install! and read up on MX, glad I did, loving it so far, rapiddde, stable, plenty of variety, don't change it too much its brilliant

Re: Get Error 500 on User Creation

I registered today and had same error, no email for verification, then resubmitted and all is good. Liking MX Linux, been on Linux Mint and Cinnamon, but switched when Mint 19 came out, this system is much quicker and easy to follow, great work people
