`File->Open` shows the open dialog box, did you mean `File->New(with
template)` which opens a list of templates. The hint is in the menu
name, you need to delete the templates you don't want from
`$(prefix)/share/geany/templates` and `~/.geany/templates`.

Filetypes with config files of the form `filetype.XXX.conf` can be
removed by deleting the file from `$(prefix)/share/geany` or
`$(prefix)/share/geany/filedefs` in newer Geany versions. But
filetypes with config files of the form `filetypes.XXX` are built-in
and cannot be removed (without C programming and re-compile) and
deleting the filetypes file may have unwanted side effects if you
accidentally open one of those files.
