I don't think Cut, Copy, and properties make sense here. This plug is not a file manager. It represents a library, not a file system.

"Move to Trash" also doesn't make sense here since Switchboard does not have a trash. It's debatable if "Delete" makes sense. If it does, it would need an undo.

I do think opening the image in another app or acting upon it with a contract could make sense as someone could want to edit the image or share it.

I was thinking that if the images can be dragged and dropped elsewhere then having cut and copy in the context menu makes sense.

Maybe instead of move to trash there could be a blacklist feature instead?

Ah okay, yeah that's a good point then about cut/copy.

I think we probably should go with "Delete" because these images are actually copied into the local wallpapers folder (which is a hidden folder) and right now it's not clear how to get rid of them. We could use toasts as an undo mechanism.
