Integration as default Photo application in Windows 10

Post by sherba800 » Tue Feb 13, 2018 2:06 pm

I have installed XnViewMP 0.89 on my Windows 10 Pro with latest updates and cannot choose it as default because XnViewMP is not in the list of available applications.
Could you please add some features to XnViewMP that will make it registered in Windows 10 Settings app and then it could be possible to choose XnViewMP as default Photo application. I know there was possibility to make it default from old Control Panel but Microsoft removed it from latest Windows 10.
Screenshot of what Windows 10 offers me to choose from (screenshot from machine with installed XnViewMP):

You can do it with "Set defaults by app" but it takes more time.
