Default "Open With" menu

How can I get rid of this? One some of my computers, there are some really pointless programs selected that I wish woudln't show up. Some images have a permiere option to load, HTML files have OpenOffice, DreamWeaver, IE, FireFix, etc... You get the idea.

Basically, I'd like to clean these up to just the programs I WISH to open these things with. Just Firefox and Dreamweaver for web files. This or get rid of the open with menu all together and have some addition menu options.

Click Open With; and go to choose program. At the bottom - is a tab saying make this the default program for this file type. Go through all files you want changed.

*SCREAMS* OK......maybe a visual will help...


I know it's still set to open in MSPaint. HOWEVER, when I change it, it's still going to have those other programs there...

Does it matter what's on the Open-With Menu?

Oh I can open things just fine, just sometimes I want to say open an image in firefox because I simply want to view it, or open it in photoshop because i want to edit it.

And no, it doesn't really matter what's in the menu. Just sometimes I miss click and snag the wrong program. Plus, I'm a perfectionist and I'd rather not have stupid programs such as premiere on a list for images, as an example...

You can't get items off the list without a reset however; you should open Images in Windows Image Viewer?
