As I am using the left/right arrow keys to cycle through a folder full of images with varying dimensions, the window is constantly resizing itself. This is annoying because, with smaller images, the resizing of the window actually hides some of the meny bar icons. Annoy annoyance is when I come across an image that makes Irfanview want to dock to the left side of my desktop without any rhyme or reason.

Is there any way to control this quirky behavior?

Extra credit: Is there a photo viewer for Windows 7 that behaves like Windows Photo Viewer in that the window size and dimensions remain static that also views animated GIFs that lets you navigate through a folder full of images using the arrow keys?

I'm sure IrfanView has a full-screen view. That's what I use with my image viewers, no distractions and no resizing windows that way. As for viewers that do what you want, look around, I'm sure they're there. We don't do product recommendations here. –  Karan Jun 9 '13 at 16:43
