Hello, this is done by editing xnview.ini with notepad. The ini's location is shown in about dialog.
From Clean save dialog,
The current dialog behaviour is:

[Start]
ShowSaveDlg=
0 = Disable dialog for current session
129 = Disable dialog and automatically save changes when closing window.
130 = Disable dialog and do not automatically save changes.

I highly recommend 130

From Info about XnView's settings (store & load),
Location of .ini files
The setting "Save options" (see above) also controls the location of the .ini file:

* User - User's Application directory
* Program - Program directory of XnView
* Windows - Windows directory

The full path of the .ini files is displayed in the About dialog (menu "Info > About...").
