Smaller issue with “Open with“ dialogue
Posted 2017-01-26 04:40

as CO does not allow to dock icons (except the CO icon itself - am I right?), I sometimes open certain file types with the right mouse click (or two fingers on the trackpad, to be honest). Indeed CO apps are listed there, but it this "Open with"  submenu lists for example:

Open Office
Microsoft Office 2007 (VM Fusion Windows 7)
Microsoft Office 2007 (Parallels 9)
Microsoft Office 2007 ()

(Indeed, this is only an example)
In this case the "()" entry belongs to CrossOver. How can I make that ALL CrossOver apps show automatically up as "<APP NAME> (CrossOver)" in this menu after installation. I have a vague idea how to do this for single apps, but I want it for all of them, and - if possible - without fiddling around one by one.

I am working with El Capitán and with CrossOver 16.

Any ideas?
