Can't open [png] files because of their name

Post by hervethouzard » Thu Dec 01, 2016 1:04 pm

Hello,

I have a serie of screenshots taken from ShareX, they are named according to the program's title the screen shot was taken from.
So for example I have files who's name starts with:
Skype™‎_-_
When I double click on the file to open if with XnView, nothing happens.
I have to rename files to be able to open them with XnView.

I'm using version 2.39 on Windows 10.

Bye, Hervé

Possibly/probably due to lack of Unicode support in XnView Classic?

Please try with XnView MP...
