The desktop files have a Exec field which can take arguments.

For example, the Nautilus desktop file has this line:

Exec=nautilus --new-window %U

According to the specs, the field %U is:

A list of URLs. Each URL is passed as a separate argument to the executable program. Local files may either be passed as file: URLs or as file path.

But from where these arguments/URLs are taken?
Who provides these argument?

When click on the Nautilus icon, there is no option to insert arguments.
