Change path behind icon to startup [SOLVED]

I'm running xfce4 and having a little bit of an annoying problem.

I had pycharm installed but then it moved. Unforuntately the icon in development didn't follow along and now I have this icon that won't run.

Here is my error message,

failed to execute command ""/home/edgar/Downloads/pycharm-2.7.3/bin/pycharm.sh" %f".

So how can I programmatically change where an app icon looks?

I think the icon is displayed because there is a .desktop file for it.  Figure out where that file is, and then you can edit it by hand. 

Hint: .desktop files live in certain places.
