A list of files. Use for apps that can open several local files at
once. Each file is passed as a separate argument to the executable
I figured it was something like that. Something akin to the shells
But that doesn't make much sense in the properties of an ICON. How
does one pass a list of files when clicking on a menu of icons? So I
didn't think it would be just inserted gratuitously but it seems to
be so. eh?
For example, I see the %F in the properties of the emacs icon..
Or is it expected that user would drag a file to the icon and drop it?
