Just to confirm. You start XnView, click on settings>Reset all prompts, open an image in a tab, close app, no dialog?

Not quite, Pierre.

I open XnView MP (to the browser (when all previous tabs have been closed explicitly)), open a picture in a tab, open another picture in another tab, go to Settings and click on >Reset all prompts/OK, then top-right X or File, Quit or Ctrl Q and receive one prompt to Quit including the offer to remember my choice.
Only yes: quit, is chosen.

I believe this issue is really quite important because XnVMP's refusal to clear an earlier session could be irritating, embarrassing, spoiling (in, say, a sequential presentation) or plain confusing. It would be good to have it fixed.

Objective: How to find a way to re-present the 'Save this session?' prompt.

Pierre!!

"ok, and what do you have in settings>Save session on program exit?"

In 'Tools, Settings, General: Save session on program exit?' I had 'Always'. :shock:

'Hiding in plain sight' is the expression.
Did YOU forget that one, Pierre? I certainly didn't notice it, there being so many choices throughout Settings (...and there being no search function within Settings as has become common these days).

Perhaps we should have addressed that 'Save session on program exit?' option first...

Can we say that this issue is now settled? It seems to be.
