When opening a file of an unknown type Win 7 will first offer to use the web service to search for a program. I find this screen useless and would like to skip it. After I select to use an installed program to open a file, Win 7 presents a list of installed programs which nine times out of ten doesn't show an appropriate program and is also useless.
How can I automatically skip the "use the web service" offer?
How can I either edit what programs appear on the installed programs menu or force Windows to skip directly to browsing for the program's executable?
I'd prefer registry hacks or altering system files to using a third-party program.
