This does not make sense. The selection is made/indicated by radio button. If you have multiple valid paths to installed JRE or OpenJDK they all will list (the dialog parses them from system).

A "remove" path button is not necessary.

I sometimes manually add various versions of JDKs from multiple vendors provided in zip format. 

I noticed that I have added too many JDKs and I thought this might cause difficulty in finding the one I want, and that's the reason I want this "Remove button".

It's like fonts, you can add a gazillion to your system and need to get rid of it somehow. But unless fonts, which usage might depend on app, Java frameworks are generic. So you better clean up your system than tweak it in an app. Last but not least I doubt you have so many (>>20) that it requires management.

WF in agreement with Stuart.
