"Open only one view for multiple files" problem

Postby xnviewquestioner » Mon Jul 31, 2017 1:21 pm

4 years ago another person asked the same question regarding this problem but his solution didn't work for me.
I will use almost the same words he used to formulate my question below:

"In XnView 2.40, in Tools>Options>View I have checked - "Open only one view for multiple files (startup & drag-drop)". When I drag-drop a file into XnView it does correctly open that file in a new tab. But when I double-click a file from Explorer - it always opens that picture in a new window even if an existing window is already open. So if I open x files from Explorer, I get x separate windows of XnView.

When launching a file from Explorer, It should detect if XnView is already open and open that picture in a new tab in the same window."


The solution:
Tools>Options>General - "Only one Instance" checkbox ticked didn't solve the problem!

My operating system is windows 10 x64.....

"Open only one view for multiple files (startup & drag-drop)" is not for that. If you drag&drop muliples files, only one edit view is opened (next/previous used to browse file list).

if you use "Only one Instance", You'll have only ONE XnView, and multiple tabs
