No Icon to launch Brave

Installed Brave on Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia via command line, works great except the only way to launch Brave right now is from the terminal typing “brave-browser” I would like to know where the icon would be or how to update to have one.
Here’s step by step how I installed it:

sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl

curl -s | sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/brave-browser-release.gpg add -

echo “deb [arch=amd64] stable main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

So it installed fine, works great except there’s no way to launch it except as I said, by using the terminal, btw if you close the terminal, you also close the browser I guess because launching via terminal Brave becomes a child process from terminal process.

**Operating System and Brave Version
Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia, Brave Version 1.2.43 Chromium: 79.0.3945.130 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

OK So I solved the no icon issue. I went to Synaptic Package Manager, searched for “brave-browser” and it’s there, installed. So I marked it for re installation and re installed it and the icon now shows up where it’s supposed to. I think this will have the added benefit of when updates are available it will up date along with everything else which is not the case when you install things via the terminal, you have to update those on your own.
