An interesting ride in the quest for the perfect lightweight default system wide image viewer: started with a resource hacked ( mouse enabled japanese mod of *bmap* (309KB; see; convenience made me move to *First Impression* (135KB, not really portable, nor stealth;; now a very satisfied *MycView* (29KB!) user...

Minimal and decent looking image viewer with easy to remember hotkeys.

In the Top 200 here at TPFC -- just keeps getting better. :))

Excellent viewer! (Reminds me of gThumb on Linux.) The right-click menu is so handy, but it's missing one item. (I had to go to their website to find it.) The thumbnail pane is "mouse-over / autohide". Press "t" to get the thumbnail pane to stay in place.

@MnX: nice find. :)

Almost perfect! All it lacks is the ability to run a slideshow in random order.

Been experimenting with this app again; was looking for a simple slideshow viewer that responded well to voice commands, for use with a Windows 8.1 tablet. Very good for that; still would like to see a random order option.
