Purposeful deletion of file associations - .jpeg, .ico, .psd

Post by andnovator »

I love XnView, but I hate situation with file association. Near 5 years ago .jpeg (4 sygn extension) file association was removed from XnView Classic. Now in WIn 10 .jpeg is default file association, which is used to determine default image viewer. So I must manualy create file association for .jpeg to XnView, then open Win 10 settings, only after that set default viewer to XnViw (because before there is no XnView - because it hasn't association for .jpeg).

Then near 2-3 years ago .ico association was completelly removed from XnView Classic. There is no icon for .ico. So I must create association for .ico manualy for XnView, then find old XnView icon for .ico file, and then edit registry to set icon for .ico files.

And now MORE: near a month ago .psd file association was removed from XnView!!! Thanks .psd icon is still there (in XnView icon "storage"). But who knows, maybe even this is temporary. >:|

Every new virtual system/new PC I need to manualy copy file association in registry....

So my question: what a ...????!! Why this association was removed completely, why XnView doesn't have associations for this files, when it simply can store it, but doesn't set by default?? And why is STILL "new" association that was removed????? It's stupid.

P.s. - sorry for my English

do you use the setup? .psd was not before, which version do you had?
