Yesterday you asked a question and I replied. My message didn't make it to the list because I subscribed with one email address and posted from a second address. It turns out that this has been a problem for several months, but I ignored it.
Thanks to Gary Gray, the problem has been fixed. In the meantime, Herbert Schulz answered your question correctly. Below is my slightly shorter answer.
"OtherTrashExtensions" is a TeXShop Preference Setting. You can get a complete list of all TeXShop Preference settings and their current values using Terminal in /Applications/Utilities. Type
defaults read TeXShop
If you already know the name of the Preference Setting which interests you, type
defaults read TeXShop OtherTrashExtensions
