Windows 10 and supported file types

Post by smares » Fri Sep 15, 2017 12:40 pm


I am often browsing raw image files on external disks and the Windows 10 photos app has trouble reading some newer Sony files despite the fact that I already downloaded and installed the latest Sony raw driver, so XnViewMP is very handy.

However, while it has no problem reading all kinds of files, it does not appear as program in the dropdown for selecting a default app for images, so I went ahead and selected to choose defaults by app. In that list, XnViewMP appears, but has only 30 supported file types. Types like DNG or ARW do not show up.

Can you please extend this list?
