    Can I customize the list of suggest apps in the "Open with" menu?


    [Windows 10 Home x64, v2004]

    I'm editing a lot of hard copy documents that were scanned to .PDF, and using Word to do the editing.
    In 'My Documents' when I right-click the document, the Open with menu does not show Word in the initial list of suggested apps.
    I have to click Choose another app, then scroll down to click More apps, then click OK.
    Is there a way to make Word appear in the initial context menu, instead of having to do all that extra clicking?
    (Note: I do not want to choose Always use this app.)

    :)

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?

    Can I customize the list of suggest apps in the "Open with" menu?

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Can I customize the list of suggest apps in the "Open with" menu? :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
