How to fix Fetching Issue In Mac OS X ‘Open With’ Menu

Open-with-fetchingAfter prolong use of Mac sometimes open with menu does take a long while. There is rather a very easy method to solve this problem.

Just follow this simple steps:

1. Launch the Terminal app.

2. Now enter the following line exactly as it is in Terminal:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -seed -r -f -v -domain local -domain user -domain system

3. Press the ‘Return’ key on your keyboard to confirm.

Let Terminal do its thing, and the process can take up sometime (2 to 10 mins). But once done, the ‘Fetching’ issue will be long gone.

It’s always a good idea to keep on tuning up your Mac from time to time.
