Hmmm... So, did you finally found the documentation, didn't you? Let's
read it aloud then:
The user menu is a menu of useful actions that can be customized by the
user. When you access the user menu, the file .mc.menu from the current
directory is used if it exists, but only if it is owned by user or root
and is not world-writable. If no such file found, ~/.mc/menu is tried
in the same way, and otherwise mc uses the default system-wide menu
The same applies the the cooledit menu with the exception of the file
