Remove unneeded OpenWith Apps

Posted on May 2, 2011. Filed under: Files, Techniques, Utilities | Tags: , , , |

TechRepublic has instructions on how to Remove OpenWith Apps from your right-click Context Menu.

Windows takes a best guess on what program you want to open a file with, but you can guide it more precisely with the right-click Context Menu line “Open With” and specifying the correct program.  Fewer programs for any given type of file make it easier for Windows to guess, and quicker for you to select.

This requires editing the Registry, so be careful!
