    More mystery... I have "Unpin from Task Manager" for the Firefox, Zoom, Dolphin launcher icons. But I do not have such entry for Thunderbird and other icons...

    When I right-click the Thunderbird icon I get:
    * Properties
    * Add widgets...
    * Add panel
    * Edit panel...

    Looks like the Thunderbird icon is sitting directly on the panel while the other icons are sitting in the Task Manger widget (which is then itself sitting on the panel). To move the Thunderbird icon right-click somewhere in the panel (not the Task Manager) and select "Edit panel". It should then be possible to move the Thunderbird icon into the Task Manager widget. Alternatively, just delete the icon and then re-pin it to the Task Manager from the Application Launcher.

    Your suggestion to delete the icon and then re-pin it to the Task Manager seems to have worked.
    Thanks for your help.
    I will mark this thread as solved.

    Yes it is pretty vague... sorry about that Paul.

    I really meant "clone a KDE Plasma GUI for a new, completely non-technical, user in one operation before handing the account over, instead of setting it up one parameter at a time using the configure-desktop utility". What I had in mind was something similar to saving Firefox bookmarks by exporting them as in HTML format so they can be imported later.
