KDE desktop field codes

This is a compilation of desktop field codes I use in KDE. There are more field codes, but they are deprecated and shouldn’t be used. This compilation was found on the Freedesktop homepage, and the following quote is their description of field codes:

A number of special field codes have been defined which will be expanded by the file manager or program launcher when encountered in the command line. Field codes consist of the percentage character (“%”) followed by an alpha character. Literal percentage characters must be escaped as %%. Deprecated field codes should be removed from the command line and ignored. Field codes are expanded only once, the string that is used to replace the field code should not be checked for field codes itself.
