View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] "Open With..." deleted application

December 14th, 2008, 08:07 PM
Is there any way to remove applications from the "Open With >" menu that appears when you right-click on files?

I had downloaded a program called Notepad++ and installed it via Wine. Currently, it has been completely removed from my OS as far as I can tell. For some reason, it still shows up if I right-click on a file and select "Open With>" and it shows up 3 times in the"Open with other Application" menu. Furthermore, Notepad++ still shows up as the default application for handling certain files (such as .lua used in World of Warcraft).

Right click on that type of file in nautilus, choose properties and go to the "Open with" tab. There you can highlight the application and remove it.
