Opening photos through FreeCommander on Win10

Hi,

I'm using FreeCommander XE 2015 Build 685 32-bit public on Windows 10

I have a problem with opening photos in Free Commander using a new default photo app "Photos" in When I open a folder with photos in Windows Explorer, I can open one photo and then cycle through the rest of them within the app, but when I open a photo using Free Commander (just selecting a photo and press Enter to open through the default app), I can view only the photo I've opened, I can't cycle through them, I have to close the app and open the second photo, and third etc.

Hopefully I haven't missed this thread anywhere here, but I didn't see it!

Thank you!

Its been a while since this thread started.
But is there a solution for this?
I have the same issue in WIndows 10x64 with FreeCommander x64.

thx

I found a workaround, use "Windows IMage-Viewer" as default app rather than "Photos" and it works.
But a solution for the "Photos" App would be nice.

thx

Same problem here.


while waiting for a solution I have to suggest to use the File/View command (or press F3, that is easier)

http://www.freecommander.com/fchelpxe/e ... ?View.html

On my computer it also looks way faster then "Photos" opening itself and showing the image :!:


BTW, it can be also nicer to have the way to double click on images and open the Viewer (not Photos), but it looks it is not an external exe :cry:
(or I did not found the way to set it as default)
any help doing that is wellcome

I know the questioner posted the problem a long time ago and it is probably no longer relevant to him.

But since I came across the same problem, it means that the problem is still current. So maybe I hope to help other people with my solution.

For me it works with the program "Irfanview":

You have to download the ZIP version and not the Self extracting EXE version.

Thie ZIP version will not install, but this version can still be set as the standard app for pictures.

This solution is not perfect but for me it works pretty well.
