Why are they so hard to create (well, easy when you know you have to do it in Terminal and can't do it from the desktop!), and when you finally manage to create a valid one why does it always say:
I've Googled this a few times and people tell you to go and set execute permissions on your scripts etc but nothing was working for me.This text file 'My Shortcut' seems to be an executable script. What do you want to do with it?
But the solution is really simple, if only it wasn't so hard to find.
All you have to do is open the File Manager (click the double yellow folder in the top bar), then select:
Edit -> Preferences -> General
and tick the box that says "Don't ask options on launch executable file".
Now you'll never see that annoying pop-up again!
