Opening images in editor

Post by janc76 » Sun May 03, 2020 8:16 pm

Hello,

I am a new user of XnView and like the tool a lot so far. So first of thank you for this great software!

I am working on Windows 10 and would like XnView to be my default app for images. I mostly start XnView by double clicking an image file and usually the next thing I want to do is to edit it. The file opens in fullscreen mode which I have to leave and double click again in the image manager. I was wondering if there is a way to have the images openened in the editor right away?

Thanks a lot, Jan

Tools > Settings... > General -- General tab -- Startup :

Uncheck Open browser, and you probably need to change the Mode when starting with a file setting.
