Music, maybe. Pictures no, for the reasons that @spoorun gave. Also, the
Pictures item is useful for Gwenview, no? :) Again, we're talking about good
defaults for average users, not for people like us (who can and do customize to
our heart's content).

We already do have collapsible headers! Well... hide-able headers. I think
that we shouldn't hide anything by default until the the UI for showing hidden
sections is improved, otherwise our users won't be able to find them and will
erroneously complain that we're removing features. My vote is for the macOS
Finder approach, where the header is clickable and shows/hides its content, but
the header itself sticks around. It's quite slick:

Everybody seemed to like this the last time I brought it up: Let me file a
task to track implementing that: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=389803
I think this section could definitely be hidden by default once we improve
the show/hide UI. My sense is that it's infrequently used, and you can easily
get it via the Find toolbar item. Might not be worth the pixels it's occupying

+1, sounds good.
I suspect that hiding the Search For category by default and moving up the
Devices category would resolve the complaints.
