How to prevent Notepad++ from Controlling Window and Dialog box size change
I have seen a couple of posts like this here but nobody has posted any answers. So I am going to try to seek help myself. There are a few strange behaviors that NPP exhibits on one of my Win7 machines:
When I use Ctrl+F key combination to invoke the find function, the Notepad++ window completely collapses itself to the smallest size possible. The result is that the window shows up in top left corner of monitor 1 collapsed (resized) so small that all one can see are the minimize, maximize and close buttons.
When I click on the File Open button, the Open dialog box fills the entire monitor 1. It does not let me move or resize the dialog at all.
Steps I have tried so far
- Uninstalled NPP
- delete AppData>Roaming>Notepad++
- Checked for registry entries (they weren’t there)
- Install NPP 6.7.5
No bueno! The program still has the same annoying behavior. Please help!!
remember from the past that I had problems using multimonitor setup and nvidia graphics card.
So a shot in the dark, you use nviewmanager (or whatever its name today is), do you?
If so, stop it and retry if npp still behaves the same.
You are quite correct. There is nView Desktop Manager running on my machine, that has two monitors. I disabled the nView Desktop Manager, the problem persists. :(
I’m still sceptical about nvidia manager not being the problem but nevertheless,
can you check if you have set Settings->Preferences->MISC.->minimize to system tray?
If so can you make a test with enabled and disabled nvidia… ?
