Remove "Wine core exe" in "Open with" menu (Ubuntu)


I uninstalled Wine. But when I right click on files, I still can see "Wine core exe" in "Open with..." menu. You can see the screenshot if you don't understand (sorry for my English )

How could I get rid of this?

Did you delete ".wine " folder in your home folder ????
and have you rebooted since you "uninstalled " wine ?

Hi John,

I deleted .wine folder and rebooted also, but nothing was changed.

But I have just found the solution. We could remove ~/.local/share/applications/wine-extension-*, that fixes the problem.
