I have downloaded some software and created their .desktop files for GUI access. I have successfully created shortcuts, but they are showing system icons instead of the given path icon:

apps without proper icons

Here is code from the Idea.desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=Idea
Comment=IDE
Exec=Software/ideaIE-2020.2.3/idea-IE-202.7660.52/bin/idea.sh
Icon=Software/ideaIE-2020.2.3/idea-IE-202.7660.52/bin/idea.svg
Terminal=false
StartupWMClass="jetbrains-idea-edu", "jetbrains-idea-edu"
Type=Application
Categories=IDE;
X-GNOME-UsesNotifications=true

Files have been stored in ~/.local/share/applications. Files are executable; Execute the program on click.

Please suggest how I can solve this issue.
