Notepad++ process still running after exiting app.

  • Notepad++ process continues running when I exit the program. This is happens normally when exit, and also when installing a new version. The process then locks the app file, preventing replacement till I manually kill the process in the task manager. This happens in Windows 7 and Windows 10.
    Has anyone else experienced this? I’ve tried uninstalling it and installing again - same problem.

    Any suggestions please?

  • Try disabling your plugins and make sure you don’t have it set to minimize to the system tray.
