I setup a link to web app that my company uses on my desktop, which resulted in a .desktop file like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Icon=/home/kris/Pictures/gplus.png
Name[en_US]=Google Plus
Name=Google Plus
Type=Link
URL[$e]=https://plus.google.com/

This works pretty well, but I can't figure out how to add an option to force it to open in a new window, or possibly even as an "app" window. I have tested in a console that what I want will work:

$ firefox -new-window plus.google.com

Does anyone know of a way to modify the .desktop to do this? Is the only way to re-do it as a Exec style launcher? Is there an editor in KDE for this?

Do you want to setup a "link to application" in the context menu like this
