How to view files with the same order as the folder

Post by Patrickzzz »

Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask, but if I'm using XnView to view a folder with images organized by date when passing through the files with the arrow keys they move to the what the next file would be if it was sorted by name. Is there anyway to change that?

- I believe he meant - when opening xnview from explorer - explorer's file order is not honored = it just list by file name.
(To be honest - same problem with other programs)

Shell extensions like Windows Photo Viewer get actual file list (the way explorer sees it), so were shown in correct order)

But for XnView ~ i guess only option is using XnView own file browser..
