She's right, a slideshow started through the Thumbnail browser won't stop with Esc.

I managed to stop mine by clicking the thumb button on the taskbar and hitting Esc quickly while the window was showing. It can be scary when something won't respond in a way one has come to expect!

Clara, try Alt + F4 next time. It seems to stop the slideshow all right without messing up anything else.

Middle mouse button will also stop the slideshow.

Stopping with Ctrl Alt Delete doesn't cause any problems.

Reported bug as Issue 66 (http://en.irfanview-forum.de/vb/project.php?issueid=66)

I found that I could close the slideshow with Esc if I closed thumbnails first (by pressing Alt+Tab to show them and then Esc quickly, before the next slide).

It looks as though it is having the thumbnails window open that is the problem, rather than launching the show from there. I got a similar problem by opening the thumbnails window and then launching the slideshow to play in a window from the normal dialog box. Without thumbnails open, no problem.

Don't forget a Left button click in the upper left or right screen corner will always close the slideshow. ;)

Very useful tip, Skippybox, and I see that it even works with a slideshow playing in a window.

I believe it is some type of focus issue. If you ALT+Tab twice, to give the Thumbnail window focus, then give it back to the slideshow, keyboard functionality is restored. You could also achieve this by pressing ALT+Esc, then Esc, then a Left or Right Click, which seems to restore the keyboard.

Other keys besides Esc can cancel the slideshow once the keyboard is restored, like the Return key. You can also pause a slideshow using the Pause key and resume it using the Return key.

Pressing key M will minimize a fullscreen slideshow, allowing you to close it.
