How to delete a program from the Open with Window

Well this afternoon I was trying to insert PrintMaster into the open with window. I stupidly thought it was install.exe and clicked it and it will not open my files at all that are in my documents. (my PM files are stored in the document file folder)

Sooo I need to remove the install.exe from the Open With Windows program. Just to run my projects in PM.

Can anyone help me????? PLEASE say it's possible.....

Thanks in advance....

It's probably the PMW.exe that is the PrintMaster program you are running.

That link was just a reference, nobody is trying to get you to buy anything.

We are going to need you to report back after each step, and we'll go slow to confirm everything is being done correctly.

Are you ready to start?

OK, let's try what I mentioned above, right click on one of your .sig files, choose open with.

When you get the open with dialogue box, press the browse button and go to the C:\program files (x86) folder and find the PrintMaster folder.

(This is just like we did in your other thread)

When you get there find the PMW.exe (you pointed that out earlier)

Select that instead of the install.exe you picked earlier.

Excellent news!

I wouldn't bother with the install.exe being there it won't hurt anything as long as you know to leave it alone.

No money needed, glad we got it sorted for you.
