Windows 7: How to edit a program name on the recommended programs list?

How to edit a program name on the recommended programs list?

As seen in the image below, how can I rename "VirtualNES NES emulator" to whatever I please by editing it in the registry? I have done this once before but now I have since forgotten how to do it. I tried looking it up but all I can find is how to remove a program by extension. I just want to rename a few programs on the Open With/Recommended Programs list.

Any help here will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Never mind, I figured out how to do it.
