Pictures open always maximized from browser.

Post by Triangulix » Mon Apr 02, 2018 9:53 am

Hi

I just switched to a new computer and installed the latest version of Xnview. Unfortunatelly I cannot stop it from opening every picture I doublecklick in the browser window maximized. I have selected "Fit window to picture" and that is what I want.
What should I do?

Thanks

Hi

No, it is not enabled.
In the meantime I was able to find the INI setting that fixed this maximization problem for me about 10 years ago:
ckv wrote:You can disable this behavior by manually adding MaximizeViewWhenOpen=0 in View section to your xnview.ini or registry.
See this topic for more info.
It is a pitty that after so many years this option is still only available via an INI setting.
Am I really the only person who uses XnView with many pictures side by side instead of always one picture maximized?
