I have noticed that when we look in a file properties we are able to choose the default application for that kind of file.

However, as I explained in the forum thread, I am really curious about the procedure to include new applications in the "recommended apps" list (for instance, when we right-click and choose "open with other application..."), instead of changing just the default one.
