    Default Tablet Box - Anyone Noticed this before?

    Open IrfanView, and press Shift+Tab. This is not new as it happens in IrfanView 4.44 too. Is it perhaps something new in Windows 10? It surprised me because I never seen it before, and it does not seem to be documented in the Help file shortcuts.

    I get the same on my ancient Win7 laptop for IV 4.44, 4.52 & 4.53. - not on 4.38
    At the same time the menu bar disappears.

    Could relate to the Alt+Shift+M we tested recently. The user there might have pressed Shift+Tab; much more likely than accidentally hitting Alt+Shift+M.

    The user who lost the menus was opening images in another Windows program; nothing to do with Shift+Tab or Alt+Shift+M.

    The Tablet Box has obviously been around for a long time, so all the more surprising that I never noticed it before.

    See https://www.irfanview.com/history_old.htm:
    Version 4.41 : New hotkey: SHIFT + Tab: Start/End Tablet mode dialog

    BTW: Works to start the Tablet Box, but not to end it with Iview32-4.53

    Thanks. I should have searched help a bit further down the page.

    Shift Tab will disable it if the IrfanView window is given focus.

    Thanks. Tried both with focus on the picture and the box, both didn't work. Now tried again and it works as you described.
    However, why isn't there a Close button as IrfanPaint has. Even if one uses a tablet a close button can be tipped on.
