    The latest version 4.44 added Ctl + Shift + F to the list of wallpaper shortcuts, so there's one more to avoid. It also broke the shortcuts for Ctrl + Shift + S and X to do something other than what they were intended to do.

    See my review page for links to the latest patches.

    Ctrl + Shift + N is still not listed in Help, so no one bothered to inform Irfan Skiljan (Help, About IrfanView).

    Obviously, we will have to wait a while longer yet for the option to customise keyboard shortcuts.

    Default Add confirmation for setting image as desktop background

    I know, the shortcuts are quite specific, however, in the past years it happened several times that I set the current image as desktop background by mistake, probably because the Shift key was pressed for some reason while trying to copy the image to the clipboard.

    This is very annoying, and some users may not directly know how to restore the previous image. For that reason I propose to introduce a simple confimation dialog in order to prevent false background settings. It does not hurt when you really want it but ´really helps if you don´t.

    It does hurt if you really want, though I am one of those who really does not want any shortcut for this. I very rarely change my desktop wallpaper, and when I do I do it via the Windows desktop personalize route.

    Anyone who does this accidentally will soon learn the restore previous wallpaper shortcut of Ctrl + Shift + P, or they can soon find it. The problem is that while working in a maximised window one does not notice that one has done it.

    The only decent solution to this problem is to allow users to define their own shortcuts, then those who wish can delete these wallpaper shortcuts and use them for something more useful.

    I agree. This shortcut is actually not required and if it would not exist, it would solve the problem

    Question Paste Special Submenu Shortcuts

    Hi

    I very often use the Paste Special and would be nice to have keyboard shortcuts for each of the options.
    Maybe by using the arrows keys + CTRL or SHIFT

    Thanks

    You can use the standard Menu/Keyboard shortcuts to access the Paste Special sub menu. eg. Alt + E, T ("Paste Special") and then R or L or B or T (for Right, Left, Bottom or Top)
