I got the first approach to work for me, the cp command. That being 
said, I'm on CentOS 7.7 with gnome 3.28. Supposedly you CAN INSTALL an 
extension to get you back to a right mouse click to add an application 
to your icon to your desktop, but this requires gnome 3.30. The lack of 
something easier to do this is truly annoying. I feel your pain!
