Ubuntu – Autorun .EXE files with WINE


I am using WINE to run several Windows-only games that I play. Currently, in order to play the game, I must locate the file in Nautilus, right click, and Open with > WINE. If I lock the .EXE file to the Launcher, then try to run the WINE icon, then nothing happens. If I copy the .EXE Shortcut to the desktop, then I lose the option to right click & open with WINE.

What I would like to be able to do is simply designate all .EXE files to automatically open (on double left-click) with WINE.

I've searched through other questions here and other sites and have been unable to find an answer, so any help is greatly appreciated.
