XY doesn't save image file type association and always ask how to open

Post by Tobse » 25 Jan 2019 22:07

System
XYExplorer 19.50.0200 - Windows 10 de

Problem
After opening an image file (like .jpg or .png), Windows always asks which program i want to use to open it. Of course I check IrfanView and check to remember this decision. But i will ask again and again for every photo. Opening the same images in the Windows Explorer works without this annoyance. I also started XY as admin, but this also doesn't helps.

Any suggests how to open my images without two additional clicks?

Yeah, because Microsoft Windows (10) sucks, not XY^^

Thank you @highend and @thecon for the hint with the Local Computer Policy. I doesn't make any sense to me, but it helped!
If anybody is searching this setting in German... this may help:
Computerkonfiguration > Administrative Vorlagen > Windows-Komponenten > Datei-Explorer > Benachrichtigung "Neue Anwendung installiert" nicht anzeigen = aktiviert

This is happening in ver. 19.50.0200.
1. Double-click sample.jpg from within XYplorer and it asks which file to use to open.
2. Do the same but from within File Explorer and IrfanView immediately loads and displays the .jpg.

(I have IrfanView set as the default app in Windows 10 Pro 1803 for .gif, .jpg, .png and .tif.)

Hi GregH

As pointed out in the earlier posts in this thread, this is not a XY but Windows problem and the earlier posts also stated that it happened in XY 19.60, so why would you think this was solved in 19.50.0200?
If it were a XY problem it would be fixed in a newer beta/official versions, we are currently at 19.80.0140 (beta).
