Start with single Image in Fullscreen, but in browser mode

Postby sovan3 » Fri May 19, 2017 8:28 am

Hi,

I use xnview to watch a folder and show the last added image in fullscreen. This is simple by just opening the browser mode, choose the option "mark the last image" and go to fullscreen by F11.

So but now I want to get to this right from the start. So that xnview starts in browser mode (simple and done) and then automatically selects one image (also done) and shows it in fullscreen mode (that's where I didn't find a solution).

Maybe someone can help or has an idea? Would be great!

Thanx a lot!

David

Hey Pierre thanks a lot for this tipp.

First I thought it wouldn't help because I wouldn't click a single image, but start the program with a special folder.
But then I came to the conclusion, that I could also make a shortcut of the first image of the folder, put this into the autostart folder and switch the options as you describe.

So now it works as I imagined. It starts with the shortcuted image in fullscreen mode and as soon as a new file is getting into the folder, it switches to this. So everything is perfect now!

Thanks a lot!

best,
david
