After I upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04 whenever I open the rubbish bin it opens with PCManFM. Nautilus opens as the file manager for everything else. EDIT: PCManFM only is used when I open the rubbish bin from the launcher.

enter image description here

How do I get the rubbish bin to open with Nautilus?
