First Panel Menu Proposal

 

Windows (in Task List) Launcher (menu item) Applets Panel Background
Minimize (Maximize) Open Properties New Panel >
Shade (Unshade) Properties Help Add to Panel >
Occupy All Workspaces (Occupy Only This Workspace) Help Help on <app name> Delete Panel
Close Window Help on <app name> ------------- ------------
----------------
------------- Remove from Panel Properties
Kill Application
Remove from Menu (menus only)
Move ------------
  Move Up (menus only)   Edit Menus
  Move Down (menus only)   ------------
  Remove from Panel (panel only)   About Panel
  Move (panel only)   Help on Panel

Red Text Shows Generic Actions (which one day will be available wherever that object is displayed in GNOME

Black text are Panel specific actions

George suggested KILL

 

If the idea of consistent actions across GNOME for the same object type seems too far fetched or not useful then Calums suggestions make alot more sense (or maybe the generic menu actions Actions can have more smarts in it):

Windows (in Task List) Launcher (menu item) Applets Panel Background
Minimize (Maximize) Open Remove from Panel New Panel >
Shade (Unshade) ------------- ------------- Add to Panel >
Occupy All Workspaces (Occupy Only This Workspace) Remove from Panel (panel only) Move ------------
Close Window
Remove from Menu (menus only)
------------ Delete Panel
----------------
------------- Properties Properties
Kill Application Move Up (menus only) Help on <app name> ------------
  Move Down (menus only) Help Edit Menus
  Move (panel only)   ------------
  -------------   About Panel
  Properties   Help on Panel
  Help on <app name>    
  Help    

 

I like this one best (note calum i didn't complete go for ALL your suggestions)

 

And we need to talk about MOVING and the New Panel Add to Panel menus.
