    If Photoshop CS2 is installed and you right click a picture the "open with" menu pops out and displayes all options available for opening that picture.
    That menu is huge and just has way to many options.
    Is there any way i can edit this somewhere?

    First get rid of the droplets you don't want:
    Then use Terminal and the command
    /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
    to reset the context menu.

    Mitthrawnuruodo: Perfect.. i will try it as soon as i get home.
    I don't know why they included all that without asking when installing or let the user check on/off a list they want instead of this bloated menu.

    Tank you for helping :)
