How to lunch a python file from desktop


I have an application written in python. I can execute this file by using the following command;

python3 /path/

I want to create an icon in the desktop to do this.
I made a .dektop file with the following contents and have it on the ~/.local/application directory but no icon appeared on the desktop.

Exec=python3 /path/

I am getting lunching on the application if I click on the file.

Would you please guide me on what changes do I need to make?

You probably misspelled the icon name: is it javaws.png?
