    Can somebody help me with this? The thing is since forever I am using customized context menus

    Instead of open, print and other stuff I got:

    for example for.png files:

    Open (Picasa)
    Open (Picture Manager)
    Open (Photoshop)
    Take Ownership

    The thing is, in win10, everytime I select option other than default associated app, I got popup "How do you want to open this file? ", and when I select something else than default app, obviously it breaks my whole menu cuz it changes the associated type. If I choose nothing it won't let me open with the app of my choice from the menu.

    Question is, how to get rid of this "Manager" popping up everytime, actually I dont need it at all, I want it removed, erased.

    Would be grateful for help.

    And yes, I am absolutely hundred percent sure that all provided paths and commands are correct.

    When you 'choose another app' make sure that 'Always use this app ****' is not ticked, then it wont change the default setting.

    Thanks for the replies, I really appreciate your help, will check the app, cuz I hate this "Manager", but in the meantime I found the issue:

    My menu option should look like:
    "E:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OIS.EXE" /shellOpen "%1"

    instead accidentally I used system variables that are not present in the current system:

    "E:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~3\Office14\OIS.EXE" /shellOpen "%1"
