I would like to somehow find the commands for certain programs. Some of them I can right click and view properties but others aren't so apparent. For instance the command for increasing the volume up or down. Or the command for opening the "start menu" is there a way to easily find these out? Or maybe run the terminal and have it display the commands used when I click something?

You can refer to the xxx.desktop file that located in /usr/share/applications

thanks that works pretty well. I couldn't find the volume up and down commands in there, but I found those specific commands online so no need.
