Thanks tmksStyle and thanks for reading my comment about this lovely feature in that other topic and enriching your knowledge! :)

I have added the same comment as a quote below so that it's quicker for future readers of this topic to read about:

In XnView MP 0.48, there has been rebirth of a legacy feature which now goes under a new name of "Single view for multi-opened files". This feature enables a user to select multiple image files (either from xnview's Browser/any file manager/system drag & drop too) and then launch these same multiple image files all in one go within a single view tab with just that own file-list of selected files. No other existing image files in a same directory folder would be detected if not selected.

So for example, if a user has a folder directory of about '100' image files and a user only specifically highlights '20' of those image files to open in XnView MP 0.48; Then only those '20' files would be opened (file-list as 1/20) and not the other remaining non-selected files in the same folder directory (so not 1/100 but would be 1/20). In this same example, these '20' image files would also be loaded in just a single view tab and certainly not 20 individual view tabs as would be true if this feature was not enabled.

To enable this feature, a user must enable the setting "Single view for multi-opened files" found in the Settings>Interface of XnView 0.48 and later.

This feature still goes under a different somewhat lengthier name in XnView 1.9x releases by being named as "Open only one view for multiple files (startup & drag-drop)" and this found in the Options>view of XnView 1.98 and before.
