Can't move multiple files to rejected folder


I am using windows 10 professional with the new release of FastRawViewer ver 1.5. I select multiple rejected files to move them to the rejected folder, but only one file is moved and I have to select them individually and them move them. Is there any workaround or solution. With a large number of rejects, moving them individually is cumbersome.

Dear Bill,

The issue is with how you select the photos. To add a file to selection one needs either to use Ctrl-Click, or to click on a checkbox in the upper right corner of the thumbnail.

The main reason for this is to avoid destroying the whole selection with an accidental mouse click.

You can switch to a more familiar method of selection. To do so, please uncheck the box in Preferences – Grid/Filmstrip – Advanced selection mode: accidental click does not ruin selection.

Operations with multiple files is covered in the Manual, "Operations with Multiple Files", page 56.

For your convenience, FastRawViewer Manual comes with the installation (main Menu - Help - "PDF Manual") and is fully searchable. You can also download it separately from - direct link is

Hope that helps, but please e-mail us with any questions.

I have a similar issue running 1.5.0, build 1472 in Windows 10.
The multiple file handling works in grid view as stated above, but NOT from the filmstrip.   I have "checked" the box in the upper right for each photo to be moved to rejected folder.

Dear Sir:

In Single View mode (single file in main window + optional filmstrip), the Menu - File - Move/Copy items will act on the current file. This is 'by design' (because most other programs, like Lightroom, also works this way).

To move multiple files in filmstrip mode:

  • either use context menu  in filmstip (right click on a thumbnail belonging to the set of selected files)
  • or uncheck 'Single file keys works for multiple files too' in settings. This will result in
    • Menu - File - Move/Copy will always work on single file
    • Menu - Select/Batch - Move/Copy will always work on selected files
