I had to “Refresh” Windows 8.1. Supposedly “Refresh” is not supposed to delete ‘data’, just apps. I re-installed notpad++, and it looks like a virgin install. Can I recover my notepad++ files/settings?

I guess it depends how Notepad++ was installed. Check in your
%APPDATA%directory (no clue where this is under Win8) and there should be several xml files there. If it was installed to save these settings alongside the exe then most likely Windows didn’t know it was “data” that needed saved.

It turns out that “Refresh” saves stuff in C:\Windows.old folder
So, I copied folder Notepad++
Started up Notepad++, and all looks well so far.
