How to add a new command in Run menu

  • I am using Notepad++ v6.7.9.2 in Windows 7.

    i addded the
    <Command name=“PHP Manual” Ctrl=“yes” Alt=“yes” Shift=“no” Key=“116”>hh.exe “ms-its:C:\PHP Manual\php_manual_en.chm::/function.$(CURRENT_WORD).html”</Command>

    to “Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\shortcuts.xml”, but it didn’t make any changes in Run menu.

    Then i tried adding the above command in “C:\Users\Ovalion\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\shortcuts.xml”, but still it didn’t reflect any changes.

    So how can i add the above command in Run menu

  • (Not sure which file you actually need to edit) What did you use to edit the file? If you used Notepad++ to edit the file the changes will get overwritten when you close Notepad++. Try using Notepad or some other editor.

  • yes we have to update the ( %APPDATA%\Notepad++ ) and earlier i tried from Notepad++ editor itself, now when i tried from another editor, it did reflect the modifcations.

    thanks for the help, dail
