How does neoPV Photo Viewer Work?


.NetFramework is the only prerequisite of neoPV. No installation is needed. You put neoPV.exe somewhere in your computer and then associate files with it. In settings, you'll find options to associate file extensions with neoPV, but since this method is no longer working in Windows 10, you must do this manually for now. In future versions, we may make this happen in via the settings.

Associating Image Files with NeoPV

In order to associate images extensions (jpg, png, etc.) in Windows 10, you must go to Control Panel > Programs > Default Programs > Make a File Type always open with a specific program:
Control Panel Default Programs Windows 10
It takes a while to open the list of all extension default programs. Then you find your desired extensions and change the default program by clicking on Change Program button on the top right corner. Then in the opened window click on "More Apps" and browse neoPV to be chosen as the default photo viewer.
