Create Android Studio Shortcut on Ubuntu 18.04

You can easily create an Android Studio shortcut by creating an desktop entry using the following the steps below.
In this guide, my Android Studio is installed in /opt/android-studio folder. Your folder location may differ.

1. Open terminal and type

cd ~/.local/share/applications

2. Create a .desktop file using your favorite text editor

nano android-studio.desktop

3. My .desktop file looks like this

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Name=Android Studio
Icon=/opt/android-studio/bin/studio.png
Exec="/opt/android-studio/bin/studio.sh" %f
Categories=Development;IDE;
Terminal=false
StartupWMClass=jetbrains-android-studio

As a template for desktop entry you can use this snippet
