Disable mouse right click context menu ?

Post by Johnny Rico »

Hello, I wanted to know if there was any way to disable right click context menu in view mode, because mouse right click is mainly used for zooming and I NEVER use this context menu, the latter appearing annoyingly when using zoom with mouse wheel...

Thanks !

Please look at the options available in Tools > Options > Interface -- Mouse tab.

Lots of other settings there that may be also worth exploring... :D

Sorry, I did not specify that I've already disabled anything related to right click on this option tab :)

You mean that when you are zooming using the mouse wheel you are inadvertently selecting mouse right-click?

If you have the mouse wheel set to Zoom in/out and the mouse right button set to Do nothing then pressing the mouse right button has no effect, doesn't it?

If I am still missing the point please try to explain in a different way.

Here are my settings...

I zoom images with mouse wheel up and down while pressing right mouse button (I guess this is not customisable) but every time I release the same right mouse button, I get the annoying context menu...

You can set the mouse wheel to Zoom In/out if you give up Previous/next file, then if Right button is set to Do nothing you have what you want, don't you?

You can do like this:
- Mouse wheel - zoom +/-
- Mouse wheel + ctrl - previous / next file

Are you referring to the XnView Shell Extension?

I'm sorry if your original question was misunderstood, there are a lot of questions about mouse settings.

If you are asking how to uninstall or otherwise deactivate the Shell Extension, I'm afraid I don't know as I have never used it, but someone else will know... :?:
