  3. You accidentally dragged one into another
  4. You renamed them
  5. You removed some applications and can’t remember which one
  6. You want to reinstall missing packages

type in the followings in your terminal:

Remove and purge Kali-Menu

apt-get remove --purge kali-menu && apt-get clean

Remove local applications in your profile

rm -rf .local/share/applications

Remove Kali Menus from .config

rm -rf .config/menus

Reboot your machine
