Option to disable XnView from starting up whenever we view an image in fullscreen mode

Whenever you open an image to be viewed in fullscreen mode, after pressing ESC to exit, XnView program is automatically opened and shows that same image. I find that intrusive, it would be nice to have an option to disable XnView from automatically opening whenever we view an image in fullscreen mode. I used FastStone Image Viewer before switching to XnView and that image viewer did not have this problem, so I would think you'd be able to implement this.

No. Browser comes immediately after opening an image on fullscreen mode. But you don't notice the browser until after you exit fullscreen mode.

Option to 'Close XnView when exit fullscreen' ?

That could work, but it would have to close at the same time when exiting fullscreen. If you still see the browser for a split second after exiting fullscreen, then there wouldn't be much point, as I don't want to see the browser at all. Ideally I'd prefer XnView to just not start up at all.

This has worked for me for years. Under Interface->Keyboard there's a "Pressing ESC once quits XnViewMP" option, do you have that set to Never? Either of the other options should do it.
