Arrangement of Multi-line Tabs in Alphabetic Order
Is there a way of arranging of Multi-line Tabs in Alphabetic Order please?
Pretty easy, indeed !
First, I would advice you to BACKUP your active session.xml configuration file, just in case you’ll not like the new layout !
Depending on your initial N++ installation ( With the installer OR from a ZIP or 7Z archive ), it may be located :
Notepad++ .exe, in case of local installation
In case of classic installation, with the installer, you probably find it :
%AppData%\Roaming\Notepad++, for a W7, W8 or W10 configuration
%AppData%\Notepad++, for a XP or Vista configuration
So, close any instance of N++ and BACKUP, for instance, the session.xml file as BKP_session.xml
Now, just follow the few steps,below :
Choose the menu option Window - Windows…
=> A new window, named Windows, is displayed
- Left-click on the top of the first column, labelled Name
=> The list of all your opened files, in your current N++ session, are sorted, alphabetically !
- Then, click, to the right, on the Sort tabs button
=> All the tabs, are now displayed, in an alphabetic way :-))
Et voilà !
If you don’t like it :
Delete your session.xml file
Rename your BKP_session.xml as session.xml !
