Display filename in Window titlebar
Two Windows 10 machines: Desktop and Laptop, both have View > Always Show Filenames selected. On both machines, in the Thumbnails view, Browse and Catalog, the filename is displayed beneath each thumbnail.
On the Laptop, when I switch to Detail view (double-click a thumbnail) the filename displays in the Window title bar; e.g.
ON1 Photo RAW 2021 - RIV03745.ARW@23%
but on the Desktop, the file information does not appear. All I see is
ON1 Photo RAW 2021 - Browse
Having that filename info is very convenient when in the details mode and cycling through images with sequential filenames.
How do I get the filename to appear in the Windows title bar in the details view?
Are you sure you're in Detail view? The info doesn't show in Grid view, but I find it does show in every other view.
In any case, there are no options, those details should show for everyone.
Edit: Do you have a high res screen? Maybe it's a font problem.0
I was just experimenting with this on my Windows desktop & when in detail view the only condition that I can see where the file name is not at the top is in Full Screen mode but that also makes the Minimize, Restore Down and Close controls in the upper right corner disappear too.0
That is exactly what Full Screen mode is supposed to do — remove all interface elements and leave just the image preview.0
There must be some combination of keys that causes the problem I described. I have turned off "View > Always show filenames" and the filename shows in all modes except Grid, where it appears below each elected (framed) thumbnail and under each unselected thumbnail on mouseover. Excellent.
Though I am still wondering how I turned that off. And how I turned it back on. But is seems to be working. I'll repost if I find something significant. Thanks for the hints.0
Yes Brian I understand that - I was just pointing out that was the only way I could get the file name not to show at the top.
John just FYI in my testing to see if I could create your issue the View- "Always show file name" selection only impacts the filename display under each photo while in Grid view or in Filmstrip view and does not impact the file name being displayed at the top of the screen while in Detail view.0
