Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click an attachment in Gmail (.c in my case) 2. Open With -> Other -> Browse -> Select gvim.exe 3. File opens in Gvim 4. Repeat step 1 Actual Results: I was forced to repeat step 2 instead of selecting gvim from the dropdown list. Expected Results: gvim should have been in the Open With dropdown Possibly unrelated: the icon for the file did not show up correctly.
