ACDSee displays a tree view of the file structure for navigation with thumbnail images of the selected folder, and a preview of a selected image.

The thumbnails generated by ACDSee are cached, so that they do not need to be regenerated, and stored on disk as a database.

Setup and installation are fairly standard as per most software. ACDSee does require you to set up an account as part of the install process (it’s mandatory and cancels the install if you try to opt-out), which then requires an extra registration step with an email confirmation. However, once sorted, no further registration is required. If you have registered before, you can use the previous login details.
It does allow you to choose which drive/directory/folder you want to install it into, as well as if you want to use a non-standard install path. As per the splash page below that opens on Startup—you can auto-select the folder to open when the software starts.
