Square and circle thumbnail overlay icons

How do you get rid of the grey square and circle icons that appear over thumbnails when the mouse cursor moves over them?

How strange. That was the first thing I tried and it didn't help. Now I can't get the icons to show even if I check all the options on that page.

I guess as long as they stay gone it's not a problem :) Thank you.

With the current version of MP (0.35 beta), it is frequently necessary to close the current MP session and reopen it in order for the Settings changes you have made to be visible.

Here's hoping that this behavior will be corrected soon.

Upgraded to 0.38. Now I can't get rid of them again. After restarting, the XMP and EXIF icons went away, but I'm still stuck with that square and circle.

That's too bad for me. Anyone else care to test please?
  1. Delete or rename %AppData%\XNViewMP while XNViewMP is closed.
  2. Tools > Settings > Browser > Thumbnail > Overlay icons.
  3. Uncheck every option, from from the top left downwards and to the right (i.e. Shortcut, Automatic Rotation, Embedded Thumbnail, IPTC, EXIF...).
  4. Press the OK button.
  5. Exit and restart XNViewMP, just to make sure the new settings are applied.
  6. My result: when I hover the mouse over a thubmnail, the grey Square and Circle icons appear. Everything else stays hidden properly (e.g. EXIF).
