Maya menus don't show icons. end of.

The only reason menuItem commands allow you to specify an icon at all is so that when you convert the menu item into a SHELF BUTTON it knows what icon to use for that. But you can't convert pop-up menu items to shelf buttons anyway so it's all pretty clumsily constructed.

You can create menus with icons using PyQt

You can create menus with icons using PyQt just for icons you suggested to use PyQt, some artist doesnt even know how to run a python script and then I would have to tell them QT libraries , I think I will settle down without using icons, fine with not making UI fancy. atleast I made the most of decent UI in Maya., however thanks for the link I will keep it reference:lightbulb for future projects

That's pretty bad when you can't find a simple file path. I too am looking for where autodesk now hides the icons for the shelves. On windows and linux. I really don't want to wait 20 minutes for a total hard drive search to complete, but since no one can answer a simple question...
