Oh, do you mean the "Wallet..." menu has different content depending on the 
selection in the folder list? I assumed the "New folder" and "Delete folder"

actions present in the folder context menus are not the most used ones. No 
need for a text hint.

I assumed the "Disconnect" button listed applications authorized to access the 
wallet. The "Authorized applications" tab was thus another way to show its 
content. But it seems I got it wrong. What does the "Disconnect" button really
