Issue loading webp files

Post by mindphaser »

Hi. I installed XnView 2.51.2. There is an issue loading webp files from a file manager (Windows Explorer or Total Commander): XnView starts in browser mode. Any idea why?

I also have the same trouble with XnView. XnView is set as the default application for opening my webp files. But I cannot open webq with XnView.

Check XnView settings to enable direct opening of webp files from file managers like Windows explorer or total commander bypassing browser mode.
