Plugin Manager -
I have Notepad ++ on my computer and it shows all plugin information in the Plugin Manager (available, updates, installed) but I installed Notepad ++ on my coworker’s computer and it shows no plugins under any of those tabs. My main purpose in wanting to view this plugin information is to update the Compare plugin to version 2.0. I can’t figure out how to update the Compare plugin without using the Plugin Manager. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Go to https://github.com/pnedev/compare-plugin/releases/tag/v2.0.0 and download from there ComparePlugin v2.0 for your Notepad++ type (32-bit - x86, 64-bit - x64).
Manually unzip and copy all contents to your N++ install folder under plugins subfolder (overwrite if the same files already exist there).
