    You can escape the space by changing
    Code:
    Exec=/media/scout/5b08b33b-1011-4ff8-abbb-f77978ddc8ec/Standard Notes/standard-notes-3.5.11-linux-x86_64.AppImage
    to
    Code:
    Exec=/media/scout/5b08b33b-1011-4ff8-abbb-f77978ddc8ec/Standard\ Notes/standard-notes-3.5.11-linux-x86_64.AppImage
    Note the character after "Standard"

    The /media location you are using is for temporary mounting - like USB drives. If you have the program files on a removable drive, that might make a difference in your options. I would move the program and icon files into your home folder.

    I place all AppImages in one folder, ~/appimages.
    Oh interesting, that is the path to my 1TB internal hard drive where I keep my personal data haha. Maybe I don't have that set up quite properly. Anyway, I've moved the directory where the appimage and icon files are, under my personal dir. (/home/scout in this case)

    When I run the updated .desktop file, I still get the same "failed to execute child process" error.

    Get rid of the top line in your .desktop file. I downloaded the AppImage and made a basic .desktop file to be sure it works. It does. In the dock, the "add to favorites" option is in the right-click menu. No icon could be found so I just used 'text editor' to get a working icon.
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Terminal=false
    Exec=/home/dmn/appimages/standard-notes-3.5.11-linux-x86_64.AppImage
    Name=Standard Notes
    Icon=text-editor
    See screenshots.
