I would like to have a button open an application on my computer. Is there a way to do this through the Godot script, or do i need to do it through a custom object in C++?

The use is, for example(pseudocode):


I am trying to build a system splash screen for my HTPC that will allow a user, from the couch, to launch various apps rather than having to go through the OS UI. Choose, for example, Steam or Plex or Browser or Netflix.
