    Remove programs with Open With menu


    Hello, I was wondering how I could go about removing items from the Open With menu without having to download any programs for it. Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about. I would like to remove Photos/Paint as I never use those 2 items. Thanks a lot for all help! Sorry if this is the wrong forum
