i’m using notepad++ x64 v7.2.2 on windows 7 ultimate x64, i cannot make notepad++ the default application for .txt files
I’m using notepad++ x64 v7.2.2 on windows 7 ultimate x64, i cannot make notepad++ the default application for any files
In Windows 10 when I click the right mouse button on any folder in the file explorer, there´s no item to create a new .txt file with Notepad++ in the contextual menu (Option New). Is it possible to add this item to the contextual menu options?
Is there a reason why the 7.2.2 NP++ comes installed with Plugin Manager 1.3.5 while the latest version seems to be 1.4.3?
Check the release note:
Fix unusual plugin update prompt after upgrade to 7.2.1 version.
Just updated to 7.2.2 and it seems I can’t see my network drives anymore. I have tried 64bit and 32bit but not able to open files on network drive.
Notepad++ v7.2.2 (64-bit)
Build time : Nov 27 2016 - 16:35:52
Path : C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : ON
Local Conf mode : OFF
OS : Windows 10
Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll
Is this a known bug and can this be solved ASAP?
@donho I’m running the v7.2.2 (32-bit) version of NP++ and the changelog of this version says:
- NppExport v0.2.8 (32-bit x86 only)
- Plugin Manager 1.3.5 (32-bit x86 only)
- Converter 4.2
- Mime Tool 2.1
But when I use ‘Show Plugin Manager’ it still wants to update to version 1.4.3 of the Plugin Manager so I still don’t understand why version 1.4.3 isn’t included? After updating the Plugin Manager it is now 1.4.3.
After upgrading to x64 version (during install it asked if I wanted to first uninstall x86 and I said yes), Windows 10 keeps asking what program I want to use to open .txt files.
I am the only user on the system and cannot set NP++ (x64) as default anymore.
Control Panel to change by extension doesn’t register, and changing by program doesn’t even show NP++ anywhere.
I have not rebooted since I installed the latest version. Last version I used that worked normally was 7.2.0.
I just updated to 7.2.2 on my Win10 64bit AMD PC. The first thing I noticed is that now when I open a Notepad++ associated file with a double-click when Notepad++ is open but minimized, Notepad++ will not “popup”. But when I manually pop up Notepad++, the file I double-clicked is open. This has quickly become an annoyance since I do this a lot and now I have to always pop up Notepad++ manually.
@donho 7.2.2 does not help to fix the 7.2 related “pending Actions bug”, still getting “gpup does not work anymore <Debug> <Close>”.
If I click on debug, it says “An unhandled win32 exception occured in gpup.exe ” Visual Studio then tells: “Unhandled exception at 0x011E1E45 in gpup.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000000.”.

I’m having the same problems on 7.2.1 and 7.2.2. No updates available to Plugin manager 1.4.?. (Windows 8.1 Pro 32-bit)
So went back to 6.9, but still getting above problem with GPUP 22.214.171.124 , so went into Plugin Manager and this time on the Updates tab, I was able to update plugin manager to 126.96.36.199. Notepad++ is now working with v6.9 and Plugin Manager 188.8.131.52.
Dare I update to 7.2.2??
Try to uninstall everything and do a fresh install.
Or chek in C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\updater files gpup.exe and GUP.exe. You must have thoses files : https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/tree/master/PowerEditor/bin/updater
@cmeriaux I have those files thank you. I would like to get to v7.2.2, but don’t have the time to keep installing and uninstalling. It works at the mo, so I’ll stick with that until I have time to mess about. This is the first time I have had a serious issue with NPP and I have been using it forever.
@cmeriaux that’s what I have done, I checked that the Folders are empty, and they were, so it should be gpup.exe from the installer, which is crashing on my System. As @Mike-Bussey242 wrote, in 6.9 everything is working fine.
I took the risk and re-installed NPP v7.2.2 (overwriting v6.9) which worked with Plugin Manager 184.108.40.206.
Then upgraded P.M. to 220.127.116.11 and everything (at the moment) is back to working OK again.
Notepad++ 32 bit running on Windows 10 x64.
4k screen with scaling at 250%
Doc Switcher Extension Column is too narrow. After every attempt at resizing, each time I minimize and maximize it returns to being too narrow again.
Only issue I’ve seen thus far is that I don’t see a “Use Old Icon” option anymore. :(
(Though this is probably some old change that I’ve only just noticed…)
A scan of the download file for version 7.2.2 using the VirusTotal website shows that Locky Ransomware is in the executable.
Can the download be blocked and this issue investigated?
