    Missing 'Open With...' programs

    When I shift-right-click on a file in Explorer and select "Open With..." I get a dialog box listing all of the available programs. However my list of available programs has been decreasing over time. I no longer have MS Word or Winzip available (I did at some point back) but Excel and Powerpoint are still listed. I've checked my "File Type" associations in Explorer and it still shows the MS Word and Winzip associations. Also, when I double click on a Word or Zip file I get the correct program to run.

    My question is what causes these entries to be removed from the "Open With..." dialog box?

    Possibly they have been overridden by different software, or you (accidentally) opened a file with a different program and the default was reset, or....

    However, you may find a solution with JSI Tip# 2692
