    Change Taskbar so it shows file Names


    Hi,

    I saved a number of Jpg and Gif files that I need to have open and easily toggle between. The files open in Microsoft Photo(I think) and I want to be able to see the file names in the Taskbar so I can toggle between them more easily. Right now they all just say photo in the taskbar. Is there a way to have the file name appear?

    Thanks so much for your help!

    This may be program dependent. E.g. Paint, Irfanview -> Cat (2).jpg -Irfanview on the taskbar button.

    Normally the name of the image should appear in the taskbar when it is opened with the Photos app, but apparently there is a bug, the name doesn't appear immediately, you have to go to the next image in the folder so that it appears:

    I see the same bug in 1709, assuming you're using 1803. (Yes, bar a couple, I'm generally not an apps fan)

    Is there a better program I can use that will have the file name at the bottom? Extra points if it just opens the image without any border...

    Thanks,
