    Thanks. Didn't realise File Manager displayed differently. I'll use Gedit to browse for these files as it makes more sense now.

    I usually just open up both the Files app and gedit/Text editor and then drag and drop the launcher into gedit.
    But I also save my changes to the User's .local/share/applications directory, so I don't need to edit as root.

    Even though that makes the changes only affect that user, it keeps the changes persistent,
    whereas changes made to the /usr/share/applications files can get overwritten by a package update.

    I didn't even know you could do that. When you say "save my changes", do you mean in both usr and local or just local?

    That is handy to know. Thanks for the advice.

    Without root I can only save as to my home location.
