Based on the copious information you have thought to provide, I can recommend this method: "Shazam!"

However, if you could bring yourself to post some actual information, someone here will be very happy to offer a better answer.

KDE : use 'Open with' ... and choose e.g. Kwrite.

Gnome : cat something.desktop > a-new-file.txt

The "new file" can be edited ( If that's what you want)
or you can see the command : Exec=<command>
and use the command in a terminal, to see what happens.
