Many thanks.

Sorry, cannot find it. Is it a menu? Or else? How can I get there?

Open any image is one way, Edit mode = Viewer mode.

Why is "Image" missing here?

And why does Tools work?

The Browser and Viewer have different menus because they provide different capabilities: File browser with some additional capabilities, and Viewer/Editor.
