How to Run .sh Files By Double Clicking File

Mon Oct 09, 2017 11:46 pm

I tried out Solus Budgie recently and really enjoyed it overall but one feature that Linux Mint had was that when I double clicked a .sh file it would give me an option to run from terminal which saved me from opening Terminal and changing to the correct directory and running the file. I'm knitpicking I know but I would love it if Budgie had an easy way to do that. I know Solus Mate can do that but I prefer Cinnamon or Budgie over Mate. Anyone able to help ?
