    App is listed in registry open with list but is not displayed w/rt clk


    Luminar is a photo editing program. It installed with no problems and opens fine when I open it via the start menu but I want it to open via the "open with" context menu item such that the photo I clicked on is displayed and ready to edit.

    I have successfully added the Luminar program to the registry "open with" list for .JPG files. However, when I select "open with" on a JPG file Luminar is not displayed in the list of programs but it IS displayed if I select the "choose another app" option and works properly such that Luminar opens with the selected file.

    I have googled 'till I'm blue in the face but none of the returned items address this specific scenario.

    Can anyone explain how to fix this problem...I'd appreciate it.

    :)

    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.

    "Open with" list not custimizable


    Thanks again! And sorry again for still not being clear enough.

    By "open with list" I mean the menu that pops up when I hover over "open with":


    App is listed in registry open with list but is not displayed w/rt clk [​IMG]


    I thought that this is what I can modify in the registry entry
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.pdf\OpenWithList

    What you mean by "open with list" is apparently the list that comes up when you click on "choose another app". There, I see evince.exe as well. But I want it in the menu pop up, such that I am able to open a PDF in evince with two clicks as opposed to four. Also I am wondering how to get rid of e.g. Microsoft Edge in that menu list...


    Regarding your suggestion of Foxit: I have used evince to view pdfs while I am working with Latex. I need a viewer that does not lock the file when it is openned but instead reloads it automatically whenever the file is modified. Does Foxit do that?

    App is listed in registry open with list but is not displayed w/rt clk

    How can I add a new program to the Open With dialog list


    Thanks...I did that but the app does not show up on the list. I checked the registry key and the app is indeed listed there. Is there a limit on how many apps can be displayed in the list?
