Browse the web, Check email, and Listen to music will all show whatever you pick from available choices in System Settings > System Info > Default Applications, (Web, Mail, Music

I don't believe View Photos can be changed without a source edit or some unadvised binary diversion/rename, or removing shotwell which will then pick from a preset top down list

You can alter this to some extent in the src, - PlacesHomeView.cpp

As is the only favorite that can be expanded to 'non-traditional' choices without much consequence is 'Listen to Music' - it is the default for audio/x-vorbis+ogg= and choices available in System Info.. can be expanded by adding to audio/x-vorbis+ogg= in the Added Associations section in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

good to know.. I can live with it at the moment, I hope anyway it will be revamped in future unity iterations.
