I can't drag-and-drop Notepad++ v6.8.8

  • Seens that I can’t drad-and-drop anymore using Notepad++ v6.8.8.

    Is that a bug? Where can I report this?

    Thank you!


  • @Marcelo-Luz,

    issues can be reported here.
    I’m using npp 6.8.8 as well and I don’t have that behaviour.
    Can we get a debug info output? Goto ?->Debug Info


  • Thanks for your fast reply, Claudia!

    I’ve created the issue #1431 with this possible bug and also with the debug info.



  • Hello Marcelo-Luz,

    I assume I know what’s going on.
    You start npp as elevated process (as seen by Admin mode : ON) but, I assume,
    explorer was start with normal privileges. When you now, drag a file from explorer
    to npp you get that kind of behaviour as windows doesn’t allow it.
    In general, a process with lower privilege cannot drag something to a process with higher privileges. So, solution would be either to start explorer as admin as well or npp with normal privileges.
