How Can I delete 'Open With' entries? I have Office Home and Student, and MS Word on my W7 64laptop. I was trying to get my .doc files to open in Word instead of OHS which takes priority, but I couldn't find Word in my prog list so I created a file type association with the prog shortcut ...wordicon.exe. This of course didn't work so I uninstalled OHS, and now all my .doc files open properly in Word, however the wordicon.exe option still exists in the "Open with" list.
The 'Open With' pop-up is not equipped with any 'Delete' or 'Edit' buttons that would allow one to delete redundant applications from the list. I've had a look at .... HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\\OpenWithList , but wordicon.exe isn't listed. Is there any way to delete entries from this list?
