    Default Include window name in the screenshot name?

    Is it possible to include window name in the screenshot name?

    I've taken a bunch of screenshots from different games,
    but then I noticed that default filename pattern is horrible since it is impossible to tell where they were taken from,
    so I can't just separate them by name, and instead need to view each and every one to sort them...
    Is there any way to avoid this?

    I did view the help file on screenshots and placeholders - couldn't find how to solve this.

    You could manually type the Window name in the default username string, and change it whenever you want to take screenshots from a different game. The filename pattern will be stored in the ini file. See the i_options.txt in C:\Program Files\IrfanView for command line options that you could use to launch IrfanView with different parameters from different shortcuts. I am not an expert on doing this, but the info is there if you are willing to dig a bit.
