If I type geany ~/scripts/*.sh in a terminal, it opens up Geany with all of those shell files ready to edit. If I add this same line to a custom launcher, it opens a file called "*.sh" instead. How can I tell the launcher to act like the terminal? I tried checking "open in terminal", but it did not help.

Wrap your command in a call to Bash, specifically bash -c "geany ~/scripts/*.sh".
