Windows Picture and Fax Viewer Hotkeys
If you do not need more than a basic photo viewer you can just as well settle with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer which ships with Windows OS. Here is its shortcut key list.
|Previous Image||Go to the previous image in this folder.||LEFT ARROW|
|Next Image||Go to the next image in this folder.||RIGHT ARROW|
|Best Fit||Reduce or enlarge the image to fit into the window’s current size (unless the image is already at the optimal window size).||CTRL+B|
|Actual Size||Display the image without scaling.||CTRL+A|
|Start Slide Show||Displays each image in the folder in a slide show. Start, pause, navigate, or end the slide show using the slide show toolbar in the upper right-hand corner.||F11|
|Zoom In||Enlarge the displayed image to twice its size.||PLUS SIGN (on the numeric keypad)|
|Zoom Out||Reduce the displayed image by half its size.||MINUS SIGN (on the numeric keypad)|
|Rotate clockwise||Rotate the image by 90 degrees clockwise.||CTRL+K|
|Rotate counter-clockwise||Rotate the image by 90 degrees counter-clockwise.||CTRL+L|
|Delete Image||Delete the image. Windows asks you to confirm that you want to delete the image.||DELETE|
|Print the current image.||CTRL+P|
|Copy To||Copy/save the image file to another location.||CTRL+S|
|Help||Display this Help file.||F1|
Some of the shortcut keys are familiar to me. So I can easily use these. Thanks!
However, the CTRL + S are for saving file in your chosen path. It’s not for copying. It still does the same, though. lol!
There is a registry entry you can modify to adjust the rate at which the slides are shown. Is there a short cut key to do the same? If not, perhaps someone might consider writing a utility to monitor the shortcut keys and changing the frame rate of the slide show. It is amazing how many simple “details” Microsoft leaves out.
Maybe get a better image viewer – like IrfanView for instance.
