[solved!] Doubleclick on file in Windows Explorer opens XnViewMP in Fullscreen view

Post by Alt68er » Sat Apr 28, 2018 5:44 pm

Hi,

the subject already says what happens. But I would prefer that MP would open in the standard view like it ist opened when I doubleclick it within MP.

Is there a setting that I did not find to get this behaviour?

In all other aspects up to now I'm 200% happy with this fine program!

Many thanks in advance four any help and kind regards,
Peter

Yes... :)

Tools > Settings... > General -- General tab

Then scroll down to Mode when starting with a file -- Normal

I think that is the setting you need, there are also many other settings options it may be worth looking at... :wink:

@Pierre: This seems a common request, is Fullscreen really the default setting?
