    You could make you a little shell script in your home directory, make it executable and point your desktop launcher to it. Something like:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    cd /home/leo5111/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/thrown_folder/ && 
    wine thrown.exe
    Name it something like "start_thrown" and execute it with the created launcher.
