Advice for when installing during the installation, choose to associate IrfanView with 'Images only'
Preference location(s)
[1] own profile
[2] Windows profile directory / self definable
[3] registry
i_vew32.ini saved in IrfanView program directory applies to all users unless it has been configured to use a seperate i_vew32.ini for each user
Means of pre-configuring for multiple users
[1] own automated means of pre-config
[2] put in Default User (may have to point there too)
[3] create .reg file or run application and set prefs for template user account, both of which are manual tasks
on systems where more than one person, each with their own profile, will be running IrfanView,
its better to configure it to use a per-user configuration

In i_vew32.ini in the IrfanView program directory, add to the [Others] section the line 'INI_Folder=directory' where 'directory' can be anything, i.e. %APPDATA%, and IrfanView will instead use that preferences file.
using %APPDATA% will enable each user to have their own settings.

if i_view32.ini doesn't already exist in 'location' IrfanView will create a new one, based on its own default set, not yours.

if you copy an existing i_view32.ini to 'location' IrfanView will use that set of preferences


IrfanView would be better to pre-configure if, with a pre-rolled INI file in the program directory, using 'INI_Folder=directory', it used it as a template by which to create a new i_view32.ini in 'location for all subsequent users who
ran the application for the first time or if i_view32.ini was missing
Do preferences contain any user-specific data?
Preferences worth making (using application) those options appearing in Options -> Properties that differ to the default:
Extensions -> Images only
Extensions -> Add IrfanView to "Send To" shell menu - on
Extensions -> Miscellaneous -> Other shell options -> Add IrfanView as application for USB events (digital cameras etc.) - ?
Add "Open With IrfanView" to shell menu for ALL file types (At your own risk) - on
File Handling -> Delete -> Ask me before deleting files - on
File Handling -> Delete -> Delete to Recycle Bin - on
Misc 1. -> Display 'Save'-Dialog for  'File->Save' - off
Misc 1. -> Only 1 instance of IrfanView is active - on
Misc 1. -> Jump always to next image if Page Up/Page Down key (or mouse wheel) pressed - on
Misc 1. -> Use right mouse button for context menu (default: scrolling) - ?
Misc 2. -> Set external viewer/editor (for menu 'File'): - point it to your chosen image manipulation software
Misc 3. -> Show/Hide Toolbar buttons: -> About IrfanView - off

View -> Display options -> fit only big images to window
