  2. Finally!! Thank you SO much!! I had a bunch of useful stuff in my Open With menu and I reinstalled my Mac OS and when I copied my data back onto it they showed up again!! How is that even possible when I never installed them, it was a fresh installation!? Got so annoyed…
    But thankfully, this solved it… thanks again!
