Too many Open with.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to reduce the number of applications listed when your right click on a file and select "Open with". For example, with a JPG file I got 10 listed and I would use maybe 2 or 3 of them. So with JPG I got Paint, [Apple] Picture Viewer, Windows Media Center, Windows Photo Viewer and 6 others.

  • Type  Default Programs in Windows 7's  Search programs and files box and then press the Enter key.  You can then set your desired default program options.

  • I guess you didn't understand the question. I KNOW how to set the default program. I want to remove some of the programs that are listed in "Open with" because I'll never use them.
