Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Right clicking on applications in the Unity dash does nothing. I believe (on the basis of end-user expectation) it should present an identical context menu to the one that is presented to the user upon right clicking a program in the unity launcher. For example, "keep in launcher".

Where is this design discussion because this badly needs to be implemented.
More importantly where is the context-menu for files, such as very essential options like "Open with..", "Properties" etc.
If unity at least gave an "Open Containing Folder.." option one could use nautilus to perform advanced operations.

As it stands, Files & folders can only be used to perform one task - find and open the file with default program.
