Is is possible to grab opened tab from a installation on an old PC?

  • Hi,

    As the title says. I have a new installation and I just wanted to see if there was a way to move my work environment form the old PC to the the new one?



  • Hi Chris

    Usually you can just copy the files in the appdata folder to the new machine.

    Path: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++ <-- in here are the backup files which store the session / opened tabs.

    I would copy the whole folder and replace the folder on the new machine, as far as I know this should work if the installed version of n++ is the same.
    I don’t know if this is possible if you have installed a newer version on the new pc.


    If this copy process screws anything up in n++, just delete the whole appdata folder and restart n++. it creates a new folder and u are back in business again.
