Double click on picture opens fullscreen mode, not program window

Post by xxnner »

Hello,
XNviewMP is closed, no program instance running.
If double clicking a picture in windows explorer, picture is shown in full screen mode.
If terminating with ESC, normal XNviewMP programm window appears.

1. How to close full screen windows without loop way through program window?

2. How to set up XNviewMP for showing double clicked picture in program window with all options/ tools/ features around?

Thx + regards.

1. Working... :D
2. If XNviewMP isn't running, double click on picture opens full screen mode. F11 is an additional click for getting it in program's window.
How to start picture by double clicking in program's window directly (with all toolbars around)?

Thx + regards.

It is very annoying, on all my installation it is the first thing I will change.
IMHO the default need to be changed because if you don't know XnView you will uninstall it after see the image in fullscreen with double click
