The right pane only has a line of text until you start
opening/selecting items in the list. Prepending that text with 'Search
for/' (select a file type...) might make the functionality clearer.
It sounds like you haven't discovered TDE's extensive help sections.
Clicking the title bar ? mark and then the File Associations text
entry field provides basic information. Clicking the Help button
(bottom left), provides a lot more - foreground in the screenshot.
It might also help if it was menu > Trinity Control Center, instead of
menu > TCC > TCC to actually open the control center. I don't see any
advantage to duping the control center menu in the main menu and it
makes opening the control center harder/less obvious. Using the
control center menu provides a third help option (> ?, < Help) via a
side menu question mark icon.
