Currently, there is no working way to remove launchers from $HOME/.local/share/applications' via thunar.
When pressing "open with"--> "other application" one can right-click on the different applications and gets a grayed out, disabled "remove launcher" button.
Trying the same in nautilus works fine. On nautilus the feature is called "forget association".
It looks like Bug #1814 once fixed this issue .. to be checked why the item is grayed out now.
The "Remove Launcher" entry is meant for user added launchers (-> use a custom command).
Ok, thanks for the hint !
So what I am requesting actually is a new feature :)
What I want it is not about removing launchers, but about not showing some generally installed launchers as "recommended application"/"preferred application".
