Image viewer

The built-in image viewer is just a click away and supports all major formats, including GIF, JPEG, PNG and BMP. Within it you can zoom and rotate images, as well as changing the current desktop wallpaper.

The built-in slide show feature, accessible by pressing Page Up or Page Down on your keyboard provides a fast and easy way of browsing through all the images located in the current folder. You can also select a set of image file to view and browse through them.
