Please extend the 'Browse with Xnview' context menu feature

Post by budz45 » Thu Dec 03, 2009 11:15 pm

hi again,

Currently the existing feature 'browse with xnview only works when you right-click on a folder in Windows and also only opens in browser mode.

In extending 'browse with xnview' I would like:

> Ability for 'browse with xnview' menu item to show for all and any file extension - so that I can highlight an amount of files (jpg,png etc) in explorer and click 'browse with xnview' to open

> An option for 'browse with xnview' to open in the image viewer (not only the browser).. so an option to choose between the two.

this image shows what I mean

...this is just idea for the settings (also to include the setting to open in browser or just viewer):

ok I managed to add a custom context menu link in Fast Explorer 2008 but when I highlight mass files and launh in Xnview this way thee contest menu doesn't always display and also Xnview is not using it's enabled setting that I enabled of "open only one view for multiple files" - so I can loop the only opened files in the file list

I still would like 'browse with xnview' to be extended more officially in a future version

I can also do this in foobar2000 with multiple audio files selected - http://i50.tinypic.com/16099ig.png

And in native Windows image viewer I can do this with the context menu "Preview"- when I highlight multiple image files, I just would like to be able to easily do this in Xnview. Currently 'browse with xnview' is only working when I right-click on a folder but it doesn't work when I highlight multiple files I don't see it on right-click Please support
