Windows not recognizing Notepad++
For some annoying reason, when trying to open .XML files windows doesn’t recognize Notepad++ as a default program. ie. when doubleclick on the file and it says “open with existing program” when i click browse and find Notepad++ it just sends me back and doesn’t allow me to make it the default program, which means every time I go to open a file i have to manually open it with Notepad++. Any help on the subject would be appreciated.
Could you provide more information about your system(windows)?
Please copy debug info here.
I’m running Windows 7 64 bit.
Notepad++ v7.2 (32-bit)
Build time : Nov 2 2016 - 11:26:20
Path : C:\Users\User\Desktop\Programs\Notepad ++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : OFF
Local Conf mode : ON
OS : Windows 7
Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll PluginManager.dll
permission issue ??
What if you run Default program and set npp for the extension?
Or what about running npp as administrator and do assignment via Settings->Preferences->File Association?
