  1. "Open With" menu - registry entries mysterious


    I got tired of seeing an old version of Adobe Audition in my "Open With" menu for .wav files, so I tried to go to the registry to delete it. But the registry entries are really weird. Here is a screenshot of the Open With menu overlaid with regedit showing the relevant keys and values:

    Other than Audition unfortunately that entry is too general, so I can't remove 2017.1 and keep 2019 and VLC, nothing matches - none of the other media players are in the registry, and the other registry entries are goofy: Firefox which of course can't play audio files directly and a bunch of garbage that would make me fear malware if I was the fearful type.


    Does anyone know what's going on?

    How to delete an entry in Open With menu?

    I have opened an mp3 file with a program mistakenly and that program keeps showing in the Open With list selection for every other extensions that I right click and go to Open With menu from that time on, how can I delete that entry through registry editor?
     
  3. Custom context menu entries

    So, just throwing this out there, in case somone knows.

    I have added a custom context menu entry for the program rightload, since by default the menu is broken in vistax64.

    It works pefect with single files, but when I select mutiple files and try to open, I get mutiple instances of the program (which makes sense), here is my entry:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Rightload\Rightload.exe --server=1 --autostart %1

    So the %1 passes the filename to the program, and when I select multiple files it is just opening multiple instances of rightload each with a different file.

    What I'd like to do is be able to pass a list of the files selected to the program. Since I know it is capable of uploading multiple files from the context menu, all in one instance.

    So, is there something I can pass besides %1 that will do this? I have looked around and can't seem to find an answer anywhere... *Frown "Open With" menu - registry entries mysterious :(

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the issue that you are currently facing, we will try the best we can to resolve your issue.

    I would like to inform you that Winsock or Windows Sockets is a technical specification that defines how Windows network software should access network services.

    I suggest you to try the below steps and check if you are able to connect to internet.

    Step 1: Perform a Winsock Reset


    • Open the Windows Start Screen or
      Start Menu and type cmd in the search box.

    • Right-click Command Prompt or
      cmd in the search results and select Run as Administrator.

    • Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt window and press
      Enter. Wait for Windows to finish resetting your Winsock configuration.

    • Reboot your computer.
    Step 2: I suggest you to refer to the below thread replied by
