Right-Click drop down menu problem

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been using Mountain Lion since first developer preview and always expecting that the newer build would clear this problem. Now i am using Mountain Lion GM and it persists.

I would like to know if this kind of thing, as shown on below pictures, happens to anyone?

Do you have only one OSX on your computer? Because when I had 2 installation on separate partitions, I had two from anything in that menu.

@ nyolc8:

in this disk i have only ML GM installed.

I have Lion installed in another disk which is ejected and a ML image on a external disk but this does not make sense...jeezzz six safaris on that menu.

I really like to know what's going on before i tried the retail version, which i believe is the same build as GM.

after ejecting your other disk that has OS on it. Rebuild spotlight index

Yeah, I sometimes get this, usually after I just restored an image backup ...

 

 

But the list usually reverts back to normal after a reboot ...

 

 

You can try these Terminal commands to reset the list (If you are comfortable with Terminal commands ...)

 

cd /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/

 

 

and then type:

 

 

./lsregister -kill -domain local -domain system -domain user
