Using Notepad++ on remote desktop sessions is SUPER slow
I’m using Notepad++ and I found an interesting behavior/bug.
When I use Notepad++ in a RDP (Remote Desktop) session, the text manipulation is extremely slow.
- When pasting text with CTRL+V (keeping CTRL+V pressed), I need to wait a few seconds for the last paste be completed (after line 20, say) and text finally rendered on screen.
- When simply typing text, there’s a huge delay between my typing and the text being rendered on screen.
I don’t have any issues like this using Sublime Text or MS Word. Text typed in those apps during a RDP session renders just fine, fast.
I saw just one post about this, and there was absolutely no reply to it.
I used npp via rdp in the past a lot but did discover that behavior.
First thing I would try is to run npp bare minimum, without any plugin,
to see if this is really related to npp or a plugin.
