    XnView on Windows 10 fails to open icons


    Hi all,

    I set Xnview as th default photo viewer in Windows 10. Unfortunetly, it didn't cover *.ico files (icons.) so I associated .ico files with XnView as seen in the image below.

    However, when I double click an ico in Windows XnView start but it shows its default look with no icon. It seems that Windows doesn't start XNView with a parameter pointing to the path to icon files. How do I fix this?

    Thanks in advance!

    How about right click on the Icon file->Open With->Choose Another App. If XnView is not on the list, click on "More Apps". If still not see XnView, click on "Choose another App on this PC" and navigate until you locate "XnView.exe" then select it, put a check mark on "Always use this App to open .ico file"
