Thanks for the suggestion.

When I  went to open with another application, I received a list with 
other applications and the  bad custom ones that I created. There is  no 
editing, deleting, or removing them from that dialog.

I  received an email on my other computer that told me to  go to
~/.local/applications/  I found the items there and deleted them and it 
removed them from the list.

I want to   thank everyone who gave me suggestions to try. I am glad  
the  problem is solved.

Thanks again;
Stephen Oulton
