How can I create launchers on my desktop?

I understand that I should be able to right-click on my Unity desktop and select 'Create Launcher'. I don't have that menu option. Please advise.

Thank you.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have a look at Xubuntu: Xfce has very elegant support for this through the menu editor. – Frode Lindeijer Nov 13 '15 at 20:04

This option yet is not available, but you can create a desktop launcher in ~/.local/share/applications or in /usr/share/applications where you can see several examples.
