Always start a new thread for a new question (click on the To: of an existing

the thread afresh here.

Open KControl.  If I remember correctly it is in KDE Components, and you are 
looking for File Associations.  Type the extension of the file type into the 
search box and you should see the list of possible applications.  Remove the 
ones you don't want to see.

New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature?  Add it to UserBase
