Title Bar - Put XnView MP after filename

Post by streetrat » Mon Sep 19, 2016 4:47 pm

Hi,

It would be useful if XnView MP {Version Number} was after the filename in the Title Bar. This way, I could look at my taskbar and quickly see which window refers to what.

Right now, I can only see a part of the filename, like so:

+1

Some years ago there was the version number in the titlebar and it was decided to remove it for good reasons:
- The icon makes it clear that you are using XnView MP.
- The version number is unimportant to most users. Text in the title bar is partly shown in the taskbar so only very essential and important info should be displayed in the title bar (see your example above)
- If really needed, you'll find the version number in the info dialog.

So:
In final versions, the "XnView MP <version number>" should be removed completely.

In alpha versions, beta versions, and release candidates, the version number is essential and should be shown in the titlebar.

Resolved in XnView MP 0.84: In beta versions the version is suffix, now. In final release the version will no longer be displayed.
