First off, switch your Steam Deck into Desktop Mode. Once you're in Desktop Mode, right click on your AppImage file and select 'Properties'. Go to the 'Permissions' tab and check the box that says 'Allow executing file as program'. Now, simply double-click the AppImage to run it. Sometimes you might need to right click and select 'Run' if double-clicking doesn't work. Easy peasy!

Actually, you don't really need to do all that. Just make sure you're in Desktop Mode, right click the AppImage, go straight to 'Open With Other Application' and choose 'Run Software'. Works like a charm every time.
