Disable file tabbing?



  • I have Notepad++ set to always open a new instance and I’ve hidden the tab bar. However, when I press Ctrl-N no new window appears (an “invisible” tab appears). Is it possible to disable file tabbing altogether? And have Ctrl-N open a new Notepad++ window?



  • Hello @Sano-Toshiba

    I have Notepad++ set to always open a new instance

    How did you do that?

    and I’ve hidden the tab bar. However, when I press Ctrl-N no new window appears (an “invisible” tab appears).
    Is it possible to disable file tabbing altogether?

    Afaik, no.

    And have Ctrl-N open a new Notepad++ window?

    I assume what you want is ALT+F6, but if you want to reassign the shortcurt you can do so.
    Settings->Shortcut Mapper
    In Main menu you need to relase the CTRL+N for a new tab and in Run commands you need to
    modify Open in another instance

  • Beautiful. Thanks Claudia.

    As for your first question, what I said was rather vague, but here is the answer.

    But I’m sure you know this already.



  • Yes, I know that setting. I was confused because I thought you mean that double-clicking
    on a file will automatically start a new instance of npp. But this doesn’t make sense
    when reading the rest of your question. Sometimes I should just take the time to
    read the post carfully and maybe twice. But good to see that your fouund a solution
    to your issue.

    Cheers
