Sorry, thought my "heading" indicated the OS "Deleting item in OPEN WITH menu in Windows XP" however thank you for replying. This is a confusing problem involving .eml stationery and OE but feel that is resolved now. My inquisitive question was can a person delete any program in the OPEN WITH window? Have tried delete and right click but does work so there must be a place in the registry where all of this is stored and don't feel I want to venture there.:disagree: Thank you anyway for taking the time to answer my problem.
