Shorter label in taskbar

Post by helmut » Tue Dec 13, 2005 10:53 pm

Currently, in the taskbar the same text as shown in the window title bar of XnView is used. I.e., application name "XnView" and the full path & name of the file currently edited (or browser) are shown.

Most XnView users know the logo of XnView, so rather naming the application name "XnView" in the taskbar, the name of the current file opened (without full path) should be listed.
This would improve working with several instances of XnView when switching between instances.

The very good and free text editor PSPad can do this. So there must be a way.
