    How to remove items in OPEN WITH

    When i right click on a HTML file then select open with it lists things like google chrome,Microsoft edge but also some bizarre things like Microsoft jigsaw. I notice also that when i right click on different files different things will appear in the open with menu.
    My question is how do i remove some of these items from the list or is it going to be a lengthily search through the registry (not that i mind editing the registry) its just i don't want to spend forever in there to remove a couple of things.

    thank you.

    Yes i saw this on another website and while i followed the instructions given ,the entry that i wanted to remove was not listed. I was wonder because it was something to do with Microsoft it was being difficult not to be listed.Strange as notepad was in the list but the Microsoft jigsaw was not.
