Show file name fully in the titlebar/taskbar

Post by sibojan » Tue Mar 03, 2020 5:28 am

Due to the width limit of the task button, the file names are always hided to make space for the software name - "XnView Cla...". This is apparently not an informative way to show the picture information. It would be great if XnView has an option to display current file name with or without the software name.

I agree. It is appreciated if the file names can be placed before "XnView Classic".

I can't change that, it's the windows API that add 'app name - [client name]'

Thanks for the reply. I found XnView MP and other software (e.g. IrfanView) can show the file name first.

However, XnView classic is still my most favorite since it the fastest to open a file. Is there any way to add the XnView MP feature to XnView classic?

XnView Classic use Windows MDI mode instead of XnView MP, so can't be changed
