create .desktop for portable executable (Ubuntu 22.04)

Is there any GUI way to create the ${HOME}/Desktop file for any portable application (not installed as package) in Ubuntu 22.04?
I know there are answers how to create the .desktop file manually.

Searching for "desktop launcher" has been helpful for me in the past in looking for apps like this. One such example, alacarte, is in the Ubuntu repositories, and searching for "desktop launcher" on e.g. Flathub gives these results among the top ones, all of which would fit the bill for adding a new custom entry to your menus (thereby creating the .desktop file):

And as usual the Arch Wiki on this topic is helpful too.
