QuickViewer
A very speedy image viewer

QuickViewer is a portable image viewer which shows and navigates pictures with the maximum possible speed.

Supported formats include JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, TGA, ICO, WEBP, DDS and assorted RAW types.

The program can read archives directly, including ZIP, 7Z and RAR. There's also support for reading the comic book archives CBR and CBZ, as well as a spread viewing feature (two images at once) for the best comic-reading experience.

There are simple zoom and rotate tools, you can copy images to the clipboard, send them by email or dispatch them to the Recycle Bin.

Navigation tools include Forward/ Back, fast forward and back (jump ten images instead of one), and First/ Last. You can also display a very basic folder tree to help you move from one folder to another.

Apparently the program can create Catalogs of many thousands of images, and search them with auto-generated tags. But when we tried this the program repeatedly added multiple copies of the same images, making it less than useful. Maybe you'll be luckier.

QuickViewer does deliver in the performance department, thanks to optimisations like reading images ahead of time and making smart use of OpenGL. We tried browsing a folder of 385 images at full screen using three viewers. The regular Windows Photos app took 98 seconds to navigate the full set; IrfanView cut this to 32 seconds, but QuickViewer came top in only 17 seconds.

What's new in 1.1.1 (see release notes for more)?

'Lanczos 4 interpolation by CPU' became the original performance
add a menu 'Hide the mouse cursor on fullscreen'
When each dialog is displayed, the toggle of the closing button is enabled

use specific action roles instead of text heuristic roles

bugfixed: When there was no image in the folder opened by FolderView, it was illegally terminated
on issue #80 reported by @GitHubRulesOK

Verdict:

QuickViewer lives up to its name, displaying images at very high speeds. There are issues elsewhere - there aren't many features, some don't work as you expect (spinning the mouse wheel doesn't zoom), others don't work at all - but it's not bad at all for a first release. Check it out.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
