Using different configs
wiesodenn last edited by
I know this from Total Commander where I can start TC defining a different set of configs on the commandline ( /i=name.ini ).
Is there anything similar I coud do with NP++?
E.g. notepad++.exe --config:"c:\users\SomeUser\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\config.xml
Or does anyone know of a workaround for this?
I usually work on a multiuser environment where NP++ and TC are installed for all users. All users have their own configs for TC and NP++ in %AppData%. It happens, that I have to start TC with elevated rights (as admin) and in order to still use my defined settings I start TC elevated with the mentioned switch showing to my personal config.
From TC I often have to edit files using NP++. But when starting NP++ from TC, NP++ inherits the settings defined for the admin account.
Does anyone know of a way or workaround to start NP++ in my example with a set of different configs (probably my personal ones)?

can tc do something like runas?
Or maybe using links if admin doesn’t need to have it’s own config?

This question is old, but I just stumbled across it and also just learned the answer to it: In the Settings menu, select Preferences, and then the Cloud group. Click on the radio button Set your cloud location path here: and then enter your AppData path in the text box. You’ll have to restart Notepad++, but after that, it should pull the settings from your AppData path instead of the Admin path.
