Thread: "Set As Wallpaper" options to match Windows 10 options

  1. #1

    Default "Set As Wallpaper" options to match Windows 10 options

    I would love to see a menu option / key combination to mount the image as the desktop wallpaper with the FILL, FIT and SPAN logic of the Windows 10 environment.
    FILL, especially as it is most often the one I use.

    Thank you!

    Isn't that already there with Ctrl + Shift + S ?

    I wish we could disable these shortcuts as I sometimes change my wallpaper accidentally.

    Default Wallpaper fit option

    Windows 10 has some new fit styles for the Wallpaper.

    I need the one called Fit (registry WallpaperStyle 6)

    Can these new styles be included? I need a proportional fit that fits the vertical dimension of the wallpaper graphic file.

    Thank you

    Doesn't Stretched (proportional) Ctrl+Shift+X do what you want?

    Actually, it doesn't really. When I check it in Win 10 Home Ctrl+Shift+X and /wall=3 sets the wallpaper to center. That does not always give me the right fit. I am using Irfanview 4.51. I need a commandline parameter to select "Fit". /wall= seems to have only 0,1,2 and 3.

    As I'm writing this and testing it I notice the problem seems to occur on my main laptop screen which is at 125% Scale. Then the wallpaper is the correct proportion, but too small. Maybe that is the problem.

    Thanks

    Perhaps the fix in this Bug Report will also fix your wallpaper scaling issue?

    Yes, that worked. Thank you. That would have been hard for me to find.

    This thread is from 2016.

    Is it still impossible to disable the "Set as Wallpaper" item?

    I also sometimes accidently replace the desktop background with the picture currently opened in IrfanView.

    This is all the more annoying since I have no intention of using a picture as background anyway.

    Thank you.

    The request to disable the shortcuts goes back to at least 2007. I think that is unlikely to happen, but you could forward the request to Irfan Skiljan again and let us know what he says. See Help, About IrfanView for his email address.
