After right-clicking an image in either Library or Develop there are a number of options. My question is regarding the Edit In option.

Over the years I have a number of selections I either never use or have in fact uninstalled, yet the option is still there.

How do I clean up the Edit-In selections?

Thanks

This is one of those quirky LrC things.....go to Preferences>External Editing. Click on the up/down arrowhead icon at the right-hand end of the "Preset" box in the "Additional External Editor" section. That drops down a list of all previously defined additional external editors. Select the one you wish to remove, and the panel populates with the settings. Then click on the up/down arrowhead again and you'll now see some additional options at the bottom of the drop-down list....one of which is Delete preset "preset name". Click to delete, then rinse and repeat.

I have learned that you can (Lr closed) also simply delete the Presets in-
C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\External Editor Presets

Thank you very much. I would have never figured it out without your help.
