how to stop xnview from viewing icons from .exe files?

Postby bg17aw » Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:35 pm

This is quite annoying when browsing mixed folders, as it will always display a dialog to select which icon to display.

Can this feature be disabled? If not, it really should be an option (as in, skip files that are not image files)

thanks

I think this may be the option you are looking for:

Tools > Options > Browser > File list -- File list tab

If not, someone else will know...

bg17aw,
I assume this is related - Unwanted file types shown in Viewer.

Thanks, indeed that topic describes the same issue.

However, seems there is no solution in that thread either.

Still looking for one.
