Win 10 file associations

Post by bwallx » Wed Aug 30, 2017 6:10 pm

Xnview does not appear as an option in Win 10 default apps lists not when right clicking in explorer.

File association option in options displays but is totally inactive. Nothing works.

I understood Xnview was compatible with Win 10?

Aha - running the exe as admin didn't work but changing the shortcut to run as admin did! Thanks. Sorted.
