Adding application launch buttons to xfce

XFCE is a very lightweight desktop graphical environment for Linux distributions. It has very minimal hardware requirements for the computer and can work normally with old hardware.

When I decided to try xfce on my laptop, I needed to add icons to the panel to launch applications. In Windows 7, for example, adding an icon to the panel is easy: just select the “pin on the taskbar” item from the context menu in the program list.
