The Open With dialog after I've added IrfanView as the default application

I'm not sure I understand the point of the "Open With" menu then. Is it to
configure *the system's Open With*? That seems just out of scope, when there
are OS or file manager -level ways of setting default applications (e.g. in
Ubuntu, right click on a file in Files, go to Properties, choose Open With).

> Only in the digiKam "Open with" context menu is this program now in the first place.

When I open the Open With dialog, I see no program in any place (please refer
to the first screenshot). Only if I click the drop-down, do I see a recent
program, but that's cumbersome and it doesn't make opening files with an
alternate application much faster.
