List all apps registered with LaunchServices
Authored by: fabrizio on Oct 11, '04 04:51:01PM

The info in the database are gathered by the System from the Info.plist files stored in each ".app" folder. If you want to modify the database (e.g. you want a specific app no longer be associated to a particular file type in the "Open with..." menu) you have to modify the Info.plist file of that app and then rebuild the LS database. You could either use Panther Cache Cleaner or this terminal command:

/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
