Clicking on unknown files takes you to the OPEN FILE menu.
There are programms listed there I deleted ages ago.
How do I edit the list of available OPENing programmes so that deleted programmes do not show ????

This list is based on the extension registration list.  You can access this list through any open Explorer window.  Click on View, Options, and File Types.  Remember the extension that the program(s) you deleted used when you saved files?  Scroll down this list, find them, and delete them.  The Open With... list should now reflect your changes.  Also, to add a program to the list, click on the "New Type" button and register its extension.  Note that most program automatically do this for you, but if you remove them manually, or sometimes use a third-party uninstaller, it may leave its registration intact.
