Looking at the Windows 10 "Photos" app, I cannot find a way to make it show the picture in fullscreen without running a slideshow. I installed the old Photo Gallery program, and then I realized that Windows 7 did not support this either! I either want a way to play a slideshow where it does not change pictures until I press a key, or I want a picture viewer that is capable of fullscreen viewing or a slideshow like I mentioned earlier. Thank you for your suggestions!

    I'm not a Windows user (and definitely not Win10) – but AFAIR a program called IrfanView should be capable of that. – Izzy Apr 14 '18 at 7:36
  • try ImageGlass light weight and versatile photo viewer specially designed for windows – Franks Jan 24 '20 at 11:18

Irfanview is a great photo viewer. It will show individual photos, it has full screen display or part screen with menus and toolbars. It has 'next' and 'previous' photo commands in both modes. It can do slide shows.

It works fine on Windows 10 and I have used it on several other versions of Windows.

ImageGlass is just perfect for the application. ImageGlass is another open source basic image viewer, which, while simple, benefits from the speed that comes with being so lightweight, and is a good choice for Windows users. ImageGlass supports the most common image formats, including GIF, PNG, WEBP, SVG, RAW,... You also can customize this extension list easily.


Xnview is also really nice and does what you want. Personally, I like it better than Irfanview, but that's probably a matter of taste.

  • Thanks for the suggestion, I will try out both! I would upvote, but I'm not yet up to 15 rep for this stack. – Braden's PC's Apr 16 '18 at 8:43
