I wish you had an option to move between selected images (the ones that show when you press ifranview icon)

I do a lot of repetitive tasks with Irfanview. I use cntrl-r to open the resample dialog. I notice on the right there is Some common sizes with the m underlined, and 1024 with the 1 underlined. How to I access these shortcuts?

If I understand what you are referring to, you use Alt+whatever character is underlined.
