I have my own project in ROS, eveytime I start the project, I use roslaunch
But now I would like to convert it to the .sh file as like, for example, a Gazebo Office.sh in the Ubuntu VM
from here https://www.mathworks.com/support/product/robotics/ros2-vm-installation-instructions-v3.html
So that everytime I want to run the project, I just only need to click on this .sh file.
Could you please let me know what is .sh file, and how I can do that?

You can refer to the example shell scripts shipped in the /home/user folder on the Ubuntu VM.
% cat /home/user/start-gazebo-office.sh
To learn more, you can refer to this tutorial that explains some basic concepts about Linux shell scripting.
In the Ubuntu VM, desktop shortcut icons are used to call these individual shell scripts. You can refer to the ubuntu forum page to learn more about creating / customizing your own desktop shortcut. See a shipping desktop shortcut on the Ubuntu VM for reference.
% cat /home/user/Desktop/start_gazebo_office.desktop
