    How to remove specific app from 'open with'?


    Hello, Is there a way I can remove an app from the 'Open with' option against a file? Say when I right click a video file and head over to open with, it will list couple of apps and I want a particular app not appear there.

    You have two options.
    a. Use your browser page search. Typically CTRL F opens a browser search box and you can search the page you have open.
    b. Use the search box for that page:

    Note too the Advanced option.
