Question Gnome "open with..." menu - how to edit?

For example I want to have some certain applications in "open with..." for PNG. I can add apps there, but how to remove? Or any other method of management?

right click on any .png file, then "properties" and in tab "open with" you can manage. It works even better with dolphin or konqueror, as you have more options there.
You can also handcraft a .desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications.
