Hi. If, like me, you have several versions of Cubase installed and, like me, find it slightly annoying that both 8.0 and 8.5 for example show up in Open With as ‘Cubase 8’, read on because I have finally found where you change them.
You open Regedit (with all the customary precautions of course) and go to:
Each application has a FriendlyAppName, which is what you see in the Open With list and Tool Tips. You simply scroll down to the Steinberg entries and edit the offending FriendlyAppName key to include the .5 where necessary. While you’re at it you can also add the missing 5 to Cubase 5 and the 3 to Cubase SX3. And now I don’t have to clutter my desktop up with icons any more.
A bit trivial maybe but I’m glad I found it so just in case someone else finds it useful, here it is.
