cannot clear the history

Post by Lehry »

Good morning.

I have a problem with the history.
When I open an image, I always get a history displayed and I can scroll it by turning the mouse wheel.
See picture 1.

This I would like to disable completely.
I went into the settings and set the maximum entries under Recent files to 0 and checked Purge Recent files and folders on exit. See pic 2.

Unfortunately these settings did not work.

Can you help me? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance and best regards

You might have inadvertently saved a “session”.
Please go to ToolsSettings…GeneralGeneral and click the Reset all confirm prompts button.

Tools » Settings... » General » General » Confirm 'Session' saving on program exit

Alternative method:
  1. Reset all confirm prompts in Tools » Settings... » General » General.
  2. Open an image in the viewer and quit XnView.
  3. You'll be asked to confirm if “you want to save this session” and if you want XnView to “show this message again”.

Hi.

As an example:
I had 5 images open, then close XNView and open a new image with a double click, this image is displayed to me. So beautiful so good.
But what I then see is that XNView shows me at the bottom left how many pictures I once had open. You can see this in my first picture above.
If I then turn the mouse wheel, I can even change the pictures.
However, I would like XNView to forget that it has already displayed certain images.

Is that possible?

It's not history but files that you have in the same folder

That is a pity. :(
Our employees who use XNView find it very annoying.
Don't ask me why. :-)

So there is definitely no way?

Many thanks!

Strange? But perhaps they want to disable mouse wheel to switch between files??
