    A couple of days ago while trying to open an image via right click>open with I noticed my mac is listing some applications twice. Any ideas as to what might be causing this/how to fix it? No, they aren't duplicated when you go to the Apps folder, only when clicking a file to choose what app to use to open it :confused:

    Executing the following in Terminal will rebuild the Launch Services Database, and should fix your problem.

    Code:
    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -all local,system,user
    Quit other applications before executing the command, and restart the Finder afterwards.
