Open With Option

By barrette1 ·
Here is an off the wall question concerning Windows ME. When trying to access a file your system does not recognize, the "Open With" option box pops up and asks you to select a program to read/open the file you clicked on. My question is: I have erroneous application options in this box from attempts to open unrecognized files..How do I delete these applications from the "Open With" option box?

Back up you registry first!!
Look at:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
FileExts]

You can open windows explorer, and from folder options, click on the file types tab.
Scroll through the file types and you can edit, modify or delete the association to a particular file type / extension.
