just make it executable with: "chmod +x script.sh" and you can execute it from the file browser

Do what tigrezno said:

And if you want make a desktop shortcut out of it.

Right click right click on your desktop, you should see the create a new launcher here (I put a pic)

I made a folder called custom shortcuts, and I always put my custom launchers there.
Then I can find my shortcut in then Mint menu by pressing the windows key, and running it there.
/home/YOURNAME/.local/share/applications/customshortcuts
