Missing "Open with another application"

Asked by Laurent Lyaudet on 2020-10-28

When I right click on a HTML file and select "Open with another application",
I am given no possibility to actually choose another application.
It only lists two applications :
and that's it.
There is no option to browse applications installed on the system to open the file.
I just wanted to open the html file with gedit.
There is a work-around : open gedit and then open file, but I don't see the point of having to do that this way.
Is-it a feature removed intentionally ?

Best regards,

If the HTML file is in Downloads move [drag & drop] file to Documents.
This should let you open it with another application

First you must download (or copy paste) the HTML or PDF. Otherwise it is web based document.


Thank you very much for your answer :)
The HTML file was not in Downloads but I created it directly on desktop.
Moving it to another folder and then right-clicking it in the other folder, I was able to choose application.
