I love what the XnView team has created. I recently discovered that XnShell does a lot of what I was looking for, as well.
But in experimenting with XnConvert a little bit, I realized that one of the big options it includes that is not present in the batch convert functionality of XnView is the "Add 'Convert with XnConvert' to context menu" option.
However, it's not clear to me what this feature does, and I suspect it may not be working properly at the moment:
context menu - XnConvert forum
Context Menu "Convert with XnConvert" broken on Windows 10 - XnConvert forum
Perhaps the XnView software is simply more up to date which is why it's been removed from there. I didn't find the answer to this question by searching the forums but it may be there somewhere.
I was wondering what this feature is supposed to do, how it differs from XnShell, whether it's working right now, and/or whether there are plans to reinclude it in either XnView or XnConvert.
Thanks to the team who has created all this great software. I appreciate it.
