[Solved] Strange Panel Wastebasket Behaviour

I have Ubuntu 16.10 Mate installed on my two laptops. If I click the Wastebasket icon in the panel on one laptop the Wastebasket opens with Caja fine, but on the other laptop it tries to open using Pluma.

After Googling the problem I found a suggestion to look in .local/share/applications at mimeapps.list and remove any suspicious lines but everything there seems to be Chromium related.

Any ideas where I might look to fix this please?

Thanks.

Try checking this setting: System, Preferences, Personal, Preferred Applications, System Tab - File manager.
