Notepad++ v8.4.2 release
In version 8.4.2, Notepad++ allows users to customize the toolbar icons (ie. overriding the default toolbar icons by using the set of icons provided by user).
So for people who stick on the old big legacy icons, here is the solution:
Download the nppLegacyIconSet.zip and unzip it into
%APPDATA%\Notepad++\ folder if you installed Notepad++ with the installer (or if you used the zipped package, unzip the content into the Notepad++ installation folder).
Relaunch Notepad++ then you will see the old legacy icons appear.
To disable customizing toolbar icons feature, just rename “toolbarIcons.xml” to “toolbarIcons.xml.OFF” (or whatever you want), and relaunch Notepad++.
Just replace the old legacy icons by you icons, if you want to build your own icon set.
There are also 2 crash-fixes, some bug-fixes and a lot of enhancement are done in this release, please check the following link for the detail information or download 8.4.2:
