I just installed IrfanView and while viewing images, I notice IrfanView iterates text files as well as image files. How do I make it NOT include text files (or other kinds of files) in its iteration?

In Irfanview, go to Options menu | Properties/Settings | Extentions. Now,

Option 1

  • Check the boxes for the file extensions you want to associate with Irfanview
  • Select the option "Load only associated types while moving through directory".

Option 2

  • Select the option "Load custom file types".
  • Carefully copy and paste the long text string into Notepad or another text editor; now you can more easily examine and edit the chosen filetypes.
  • Remove the TXT| substring.
  • Copy and paste the long text string back into the textbox in the Properties dialog.

FYI, make sure to hit the Ok button in the middle left of the Settings dialog, otherwise the updated settings are silently discarded. –  smackfu Jan 21 at 23:33
