Hummm... This is got asked from time to time. ...but it is already implemented :)

Steps:

1. Select the files you want to view (Ctrl+A = select all files)
2. Go to Tools | Slide Show
3. Check „Random Order” in „Options” pane
4. Click „Ok”

Enjoy!

hello, thank you very much for the help

this method has one weak point, i have to choose settings for slideshow then press "ok" to start slideshow
if i want to view other, i have to choose those options again .
therefore there is no option to save settings for slideshow,only have option to save a slideshow
is it possible to have option to view randomly all images without having to create slideshow,user can save in tool => options, next time the user view ,it will pick up random images
Thanks alot

It seems that the Slide Show engine saves the last configuration but doesn't save the „Random Order” bit.

IMHO it is by far the easiest thing to save (persist) this option in config.ini or elsewhere, compared with building and entirely new subsystem.
