Using Windows 8, when you right click on a file & select  Open with > Choose default program  you get to this box:

 

Untitled2.png

As you might notice my box shows "Windows Photo Viewer" twice under .jpg or jpeg files. Is there any way for me to edit this list to get rid of that double entry?

 

 

I realise this is an incredibly minor issue, but stuff like this annoys the hell out of me.

Can you find the offending entry in regedit?

i think option 1 just means you can keep windows photo previewer while the others will change the default ofc.
