Due to testing several programs I've ended up with a lot of entries on Caja's "open with list" menu when opening files. How does one edit that list in order to remove undesired entries?


Try this:

  • right click on the file
  • click on "Open with another application"
  • right click on the association you want to remove
  • click on "Forget association"

The information is saved in ~/.config/mimeapps.list

And is shared also with Files and other programs. So you can use Files to edit those associations too and they will work in Caja.

  • Not working... No menu showed up after right click on app list item... – RookieOne Mar 6 at 11:47
