I still get the link to DevonThink sometimes when I Control click on some items, despite uninstalling DevonThink, re-installing it, uninstalling again twice.

(Didn't screen grab last time it happened, nor note where, I Know !)

Using also AppZapper and AppCleaner.

I have followed the uninstall instructions given on their website, but still get the Devonthink link.

Any suggestions ?

Uninstall instruction also followed

Try trashing your ~user/Library/Preferences/com.Apple.LaunchServices.plist file.

Thanks I'll try that, it was last updated about the time I got the DevonThink menu option a couple of days ago, so looks good.

I've renamed it with OLD, just in case iMac asks for it again, but presumably it will re-create it if needs be.

Yes, the system will re-create any .plist it needs.
