    is there a way to remove an assigned application from a file type? i don't want to open with anotherp rogram..i just want to leave it unknown.

    i know i can delete a plist file and some lunacher file and it'll reset everything but i don't want to do that.

    Mark a file with the file type in question. Open File -> Get Info (or just hit cmd-i) and choos the new application to open that file in with the "Open with:" section. To make the choice for all files off that type, remember to press the "Change all" button.

    Duff-Man says....yes, that works when you want to *change* the app a file opens with....but as he said, he does not want *any* application associated with the file.

    Have a look at DefaultApp - it is a PrefPane that should help you do what you are looking to do.....oh yeah!
