little window when opening a file

Post by lian » Tue Jul 28, 2020 10:39 am

Hello, I meet a strange problem actually. When I double click on an image in explorer to open it with XNViewMP in a new session, the XNViewMP window is quite small on my HDPI monitor in multi monitor display. If I make the window bigger, the future openings will respect the new size of the window. But at each session, I have to change the window size.

I tried different settings without any difference.

Yes HPDI monitor is first one and it’s where I usually open my images. But, when I start up my PC, the second monitor is showing the start up (before Win is launched).

I forgot to tell there is a third monitor as I use a graphic tablet but it’s always shut down when I start up the PC.

It’s quite strange as it’s the only program with this problem.

OK, it seems I have found the origin of my problem. I had checked Double Monitor : Use the second monitor. When Unckecked, it seems the behavior is now correct.
