Path of Default Applications


Using the attached image, you can see there are two Firefox and two game things shown in default applications.


I have been trying to find a way to see what the location of those are because, for example, I only have one Firefox program. One executable. Trying to figure where two are coming from. My work laptop shows four but again I only use one. So trying to figure why it thinks there are more than one, what paths these selections are, and how to remove them.

Thank you.

I suspect that you only have one version of each installed, but two parts of each are loaded into different parts of memory. However one way of confirming whether you actually do have two versions installed is to use an analyser to see details of both hardware and software on your computer.

Try Belarc Advisor to do this.

Windows 10?

Left click Start then find the program, right click on it, then go to MORE, Open File location, will tell you where it is.

I know where the different programs are on local. I am asking if there is a way to find which ones Windows is looking at in that image. Right click does not work there. There are more than just those two program examples that I have this with. On one system I show a program four times. I know where each is, but if I want to change the default to the location I want, how to get that screen to give it? Know what I mean?
