There is no way for now: https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-launcher/issues/23
What you can do is to open Monticello and see if you have latest versions of the Launcher packages.

Latest version is available at:
http://files.pharo.org/platform/launcher/Pharo_1.0.1.dmg (os X)
http://files.pharo.org/platform/launcher/Pharo-linux-1.0.1.zip (linux)
http://files.pharo.org/platform/launcher/pharo_installer-1.0.1.exe (win)

Local category lists templates you have on your machine.

Probably you downloaded an image called Latest with the Launcher. It then has been added to the local category.

We could add these setting easily. Could you open an issue ? https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-launcher/issues
