Opening Images Together from File Explorer

Post by w00tzorz656 »

I am trying to open a bunch of files that I have highlighted all under one tab, and be able to navigate through it with the arrows.

I noticed that if you navigate to the images in question using xnview browser you can highlit them and then hit "enter" and they will all open in one tab.

However, I am trying to do this from the operating systems browser or at the very least find some other way to be able to do this without the need of having to navigate to the files everytime within XNView's browser.

Is there some kind of option for this? Apologies if this is somewhere in the documentation, I guess I just don't even know what the option would be called.

Any help would be appreciated.

That's strange I tried this but the images (three to be specific) all opened in different tabs.

Is there an option to control this, perhaps? Or am I doing something wrong?

I'm on Windows 10 btw

THANK YOU!

That fixed it! I guess I had unchecked that box in my attempts to fix the issue myself. I never thought about dragging the pictures onto the icon.

Thanks again :)
