1) You may have to reboot. I've installed apps via snap before, like Brave, and they appear in the Applications menu but with a generic icon. The icon is there after rebooting. As Sebastian noted below, logging out/logging in should work too.

2) You can edit the .desktop file. It will either be in /etc/share/applications or from your home directory it will be in .local/share/applications

3) You can install a program from the AppCenter called AppEditor and use it to create a menu item. It's essentially a more user friendly way of the instructions in #2.

  • In the first case (1) there's no need to reboot just relog (log off/log in)
